Do Good and resist Evil

Today’s Verse of the Day:

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but [imitate] what is good. The one who practices good [exhibiting godly character, moral courage and personal integrity] is of God; the one who practices [or permits or tolerates] evil has not seen God [he has no personal experience with Him and does not know Him at all].

3 John 1:11 AMP

Do good and don’t permit the practice, or tolerate evil
