Sunday, May 21 (ACTS 8:5-8, 14-17; 1 PT 3:15-18; JN 14:15-21)
The Oxford English Dictionary defines progress as "development towards an improved or more advanced condition."
Merriam-Webster defines progress as "gradual betterment."
True progress is whatever leads us to God. Decline leads us away. We want true progress.
True progress unites, eventually. Sowing the seeds of division is Satan's occupation, which may seem to be a fast-growing industry. But Christians remain hopeful.
We achieve unity when we seek the common good, "the general welfare of the entire human family." It's not just about "me" but about "us."
