Capsule for the Day
When we hear stories of evil or when we see evil, we want to nip it in the bud. We want to stop evil, to stop corruption. We want to stop killings. So, we fight, we get into battle against evil. But what we fail to realise is that it isn't our responsibility to stop evil. It is our responsibility to do the good.
Let's look at Christ. He is God. He became man. He suffered evil. One would have expected Him to stop evil; that there would haven't been evil after His death. But the fact is there is still evil in the world. His followers suffered evil too. So, why didn't He stop evil? Why He didn't He fight evil?
He didn't need to stop evil. Evil will destroy itself. For in fighting evil, one can easily get immersed in evil and become evil. The empty tomb is a symbol of the emptiness of evil. It doesn't last. It is the white cloths that remain symbolizing the Good stands the test of time. The Good triumphs.
