Seek the good, and not the bad, so that you may live

We have to look for the good, to be people who go under everything that can do us good, because if we are doing the bad thing, God will not be pleased with our actions.

Doing what is good will allow us to lengthen our lives longer and longer, for the man who acts in what is bad there will always come a time when that bad thing can end him. That is why we must walk rightly before God.

The best advice and examples are given to us by the Bible, men who practiced good, they remained well, healthy, blessed and with the protection of God. But it also speaks of those who forgot that God was watching them, they suffered consequences for practicing evil. The Bible says the following in the book of Amos:

Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.

Amos 5:14

The book of Amos shows us the way in which in the people of Israel there were many who took advantage of those who were weak, they greatly mistreated those who achieved little to survive, the taxes were very high and there was a total disaster.

That is why we see the sayings of the book of Amos telling us about the coming judgment, about those who do not do good, but with their power on earth do harm to those who have nothing.

Therefore brothers, let us be good people, doing good and not abusing our neighbor. Remember that God’s eyes are on all humanity.

...
Honor your father and your mother, which is the first commandment with a promise
If you do not repent, you will all perish equally
