Good and Best

Adrian Rogers

“… let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” – Hebrews 12:1

There’s a certain discipline that belongs to the child of God. He does not have time to participate in good things because there are too many best things.

People sometimes ask me, “Oh, have you read thus and such a book? It’s so good.” I say, “No, I haven’t.” And I think, “Where on earth did you ever get time to read that? I haven’t even read the best books yet. How am I going to have time to read good books?”

I’m amazed at how many people spend so much time doing good things. But good things are bad things when they keep you from best things. Life would be simple if it were a choice between good and bad. But it’s a choice between good and best.
