…for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
There are many nice people in the world today. That is a good thing. However, many times, people are nice because they expect something in return or because they need to look good. This is only human nature.
True goodness, or the ability to be good, is something that needs to be practiced, acquired, and perhaps more importantly, given by God. It is something that must be actively sought; because, there is no one else who is truly good, but God (Luke 18:19).
P.S.: I was nominated by a dear friend for a challenge to share a Bible verse everyday for 7 days. I hope that this post blesses you.
