When good men do nothing, they are no longer good. Many have the mistaken notion that good is merely the absence of doing that which is wrong. Not so! One is good not merely because he does no evil, but because he is actively working for what is good.
“Let him eschew evil, and do good” (1 Pet. 3:11).
James explained, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” (James 4:17).
