Goodness

"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness..." 2 Peter 1:5a

Goodness is described in Webster's dictionary as excellence and virtue. As God's children, we are striving for excellence in everything we do. This means being a hard worker and striving for the best--rising above "average" (which is getting lower and lower). Colossians 3:23 says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." Let it be said about you that when you do something (or are asked to do something) it is going to be done quickly, efficiently, and to the best of your abilities.
