Do we take God’s goodness and love for granted? Will we be there for him, to follow his lead? Have we used our God-given freedom to overcome the world, or are we being overwhelmed by the world around us? The mandates of men cannot cancel God’s promises. His truth endures forever. We must never cease to thank him for his goodness in our lives. We cannot abuse the privilege of God’s grace and mercy that is given so liberally to his children.
