Good Resolve

How often is a good resolution broken because of a lack of knowledge as to its origin; because of believing that the resolution originated in oneself, instead of knowing that the love of good, which leads one to make good resolutions, has its origin in God, good.

One's good resolve is quite often attacked by the suggestion of its not being practical in everyday living. The suggestion would have one believe that to carry out good resolutions relating to honesty, righteous living, not condemning or criticizing, requires more spiritual-mindedness than is practical in the affairs of daily life. It would have one believe that there are times when it is right to criticize adversely, condemn, and so forth, notwithstanding the fact that Christ Jesus did not condemn the woman who had been taken in adultery.
