Everything God created is good. We were all created pure, as pure souls made out of light. God didn’t create any bad people. He pushed out all the darkness and kept all the goodness. So, tell yourself, ‘Now, if I bring in the darkness, I’ll just be taking back what God pushed away. But if I can avoid doing that, nothing but goodness will remain in me.’ Therefore, the question to ask is: ‘Since we were all created good, can I stay good? Can I be good?’ That’s what every human being should strive for.
