[good and evil]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I like this Zee because it states (basically) what so many are guilty of: finding the bad but not offering any good.  “Solve the world’s problems.  Okay, how?  I don’t know just solve them. ”   You are so right.  It is not good enough to just point out the evil.  Along with that, offer the good. 

    • We’re too quick to find the bad, indeed. But, admitting the problem is the first step to solving it, right? 🙂

  • So much truth here. Your post reminds me of the verse in James that says when we don’t do what we “ought” to do, we sin. Apathy is as evil as evil itself.

    • Ah, James. He was a wise guy (at least after he finally became a believer).

      Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it. – found it… James 4:17. And you’re right (along with James) – saying that we are good because we didn’t do the wrong thing, didn’t kill anyone, doesn’t mean anything when we refuse to do what we *are* commanded to do.

    This was a kick today.
    Where I needed it.
    Yes… must remember this, thank you, Zee!

  • Your last line made me laugh- oinking! 

    It can be hard to point out the positives, must easier to focus on negatives, but that is not what Jesus did and we shouldn’t either.  We are to build each other up, not tear each other down. 

    Thanks for this powerful post! 

    • We are to build each other up, not tear each other down. – amen to that. 

      What I love about Jesus (among other things) is that He never sugar-coated sin, He pointed it out – but in such a way that the person knew that He is not just saying it, but He’s saying it because He cares. Oh, to learn to be like that!

      • Takes disciple, practice and plenty of Grace!
