Retain the good

"Do not quench the Spirit. Test everything; retain what is good," 1 Thes 5:19/ 21

What a wonderful attitude to have about everything. The weather has been exquisite here. Yesterday I had a 3 mile run, checked my garden, had an oil painting lesson, cleaned house, and fixed a wonderful oven dinner with mostly garden-fresh vegetables. The above Bible quote seems to tell us we do not have to squelch anything in life; but just look for and retain what is good. That is good practice, whether it is external goodness or our own thoughts and attitudes. Today I will look for and retain all that is good.
