Everyone has the capacity for good — no one is all bad. Everyone also has the capacity for bad — no one is all good. This compare and con- trast of bad and good can find its origin in the beginning of time. “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” (Genesis 2:15-17). Was humankind’s first experience of good introduced through the eating of the forbidden tree? Did good exist before then? Good was a result of God’s creation in the beginning, not man’s sin. Good is mentioned fourteen times in the first three chapters of Genesis. In eleven of those verses, “God” and “Good” are together. In fact, there is no good without God. You cannot even spell the word Good without God. Jesus Himself reserved good for God. “And, behold, one came and said to Him (Jesus), Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said to him, “Why do you call me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if you will enter into life, keep the command- ments” (Matt 19:16,17). Jesus is implying that the man has placed Him on the level of God. This may be a test to see if the man truly meant to do so. James, the Lord’s brother, reserved good for God. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of his creatures” (James 1:17,18). Here James is comparing the word of truth to the good gift of God that came down. It was Jesus, His Son. Through Him, we are His first-fruits. We are the first-fruits, since God created the church through His Son. If, as Christians, we are God’s first fruits, then we must know that God sees us as good. When God created His first fruit in Eden, we know His response. “The earth brought forth vege- tation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good” (Gen 1:12). When God finally cre- ated man, it was the only time He added something to the good that He had previously created. “And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day (Gen 1:31). In God’s eyes, mankind was the final part to the creation, making it very good. When God sees you and I becoming a part of His first-fruits, the church, we can infer that it is very good in His eyes. Is the church good in your eyes? When we strive to follow God’s instruction and obey His commands, the result is very good. Are you a part of the good that God has provided you through His Son, through the church? There is no good without God. -A Note From the Harp

So back into the house, I went to the refrigerator and took out the spaghetti that was left from our supper. Leftovers. My parents and those of their generation had grown up in the time of the great depres- sion when so many lacked what we enjoy today. So they learned not to waste anything. I grew up eating “leftovers.” On one occasion when a great multitude fol- lowed Jesus, He asked Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” Philip responded that the money they had (200 denarii) was not enough money to buy enough bread to feed that many people. It was then that Andrew said, “There is a lad here who has five bar- ley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?” So Jesus, who knew all along what He was going to do, had the people to sit down. He blessed the bread and gave to the disciples who then distributed to the ones sitting down. Likewise he did the same with the fish so that all had as much as they wanted. Then when they were finished Jesus instructed the disciples, saying, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost” (John 6:12). A few translations such as the Bible in Basic English render this verse as “Take up the broken bits which are over, so that nothing may be wasted.” The Master, who did not consider one sheep expendable, even when ninety and nine were safe (Luke 15:4, 5), did not want to see the generous blessings of God wasted. Most assuredly we do not want to waste the spiritual food that God has given to us. God had warned Israel through His prophet Amos that “Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That I will send a fam- ine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD.” It is not just food that we need to avoid wasting but also such precious things as the time that we have been given. Bernard Berenson said on one occasion, “I wish I could stand on a busy street corner, hat in hand, and beg people to throw me all their wasted hours.” Ben- jamin Franklin admonished people to “Waste neither time nor money, but make the most of both.” In letters to two different churches Paul spoke of “redeeming the time.” In one of those passages (Eph. 5:16), our brother Hugo McCord translated it as “Making the most of the time.” Don’t allow that time to pass without using it for doing God’s will. Knowing that our time is limited, Paul wrote to the church at Rome, saying, “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first be- lieved” (Rom. 13:11). Let us be determined not to waste God’s spiritual food, thinking, I’ve read it all, I don’t need to read it again. For every time we read it we will be able to learn more and be reminded of what we had read but had forgotten. Let us not waste the time we have but use it wisely, “making the most of the time” we have. My Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I enjoyed all the pretty birthday cards and gifts you sent me. Thank you very much. A special thank you to sister Bev Key. God Bless, Joyce Henson We are so thankful for our friends, fam- ily, and our Church family seeing us thru this journey.
