Good Morning – Aug 5

There are a couple of sayings that are fairly common and generally believed:  “All’s well that ends well.”  and  “The end justifies the means.”  But are these really true?  They view life strictly in a pragmatic way, and assume that, if the end result seems good, it really doesn’t matter how we got there.   I think it does matter a great deal.   The means have to do with the internal values of a person.  While the results are only a temporal solution to a problem.   God is always more interested in what is going on in the heart of a person than just the results that are achieved.  And conversely, God can take any results, even those seemingly quite bad, and use them for the eternal good of a person.   This is what God meant when He said to Isaiah, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (55:9).  God is looking for hearts, not results.
