Where it comes from
But we can often get confused about where to get that which is truly and fully good.
Temptation gives us the lie that the things or people we desire will be the answer to all our needs and will be truly and fully good.
The world gives us the lie that its cleverness and convenience can answer all our needs and questions and will be truly and fully good.
In today’s first reading (James 1:12-18), Saint James remind us where Truth and ultimate goodness comes from.
All good giving and every perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no alteration
or shadow caused by change.
