What is good? Do what God has shown us + requires!

What makes it good?

As we start today, let’s recall that God has prepared good works for us in advance. He goes before us. For example, reflect on the fact that God has given us His Word, a love letter with instructions to discern good and evil. Let’s be proactive dads, knowing what is good and choosing to live for God’s glory, benefiting our wives and kids.
