When good isn’t good enough

When Good isn’t Good Enough

I know when good isn’t good enough
I know when I try to do something for some people it will backfire
I am aware that I will never be good enough for them
I know my intentions
I know my truths
There are a lot of people who don’t understand me
Why would I go to so much trouble
What is in it for me

Proverbs says: Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

I want this for my children
I want them to see good
I believe in this
I want them to see people going out of their way to help others
The problem is:
When people don’t feel the good
In their own way all they can see is evil
All they feel is the bad
Never opening up to feel the good
To accept the love

John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you

The wicked part
The sad part
It comes from family
The ones we should support the most
Love and trust the most

Proverbs 11:29 He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise

How can we get that back
How can we bring back a family bond that has been demolished
Can we ensure this evil doesn’t spread to future generations
Can we kill the evil as it stands
Start to support each other
Start to love again
Forgive, forget and move on
For some that will be too hard
Some prefer to dwell in their own hate
I think they enjoy it
The sound of good falls on deaf ears
They will never understand good
It is so basic though
I prefer love
I prefer to dwell in love
Love of my family
Love of my children
Love of God
A good start might be a thank you
A good start might be a hug
Maybe you need to start smaller
Try a smile
Or a nod
Make a move
Let it go
I think I am going to try
For myself
For my family
For my children
