Doing right is simply making more beauty

You know how in a book or movie you really hope the character will do the hard thing and do what’s right? Persevere. Humble himself and adapt. Choose forgiveness over vengence. Fidelity over passionate impulse. And it’s because it will make the story better. More beautiful. 

What if our life is like that? We groan under the burden of God always wanting us to do the right thing. But what if God really just wants us to be part of a really beautiful story. What if at the root, that is what is really at the heart of right and wrong.

Beauty or not.
