In our lives, we can feel perplexed, suffer affliction, and get knocked down. Still, faith gives us the sureness that we can never go wrong by seeking reconciliation with others and with God. When we hesitate to do a good deed, does an all-or-nothing notion keep us from making a start that can shine for God’s glory?
