And the Lord saw it was good….This is a phrase we may have heard or read several times in the story of creation. Take a short time to stay with it, reflect upon it, how relevant is it to life’s each moment.It is a statement of hope that the Lord looked and saw that it was good and more so, for the human being He saw that it was very good. Can we apply this statement to ourselves, that the Lord looks at each of us and sees “very good” that He considers who we are, whatever gifts He has granted us and even where we are as very good? If we are convinced so, then our best is expected to come out.
I would wish to encourage our students in Loreto Msongari to embrace this hopeful attitude, of believing that the Lord has granted each of them the best in all aspects and therefore only the best should come out of them for the greater glory of God.
