day 2854: Room For Improvement

“Then God looked over all He had made, and he saw that it was very good!”

We must be really bored for there to have been so much news over the menu changes at Taco Bell.  Gone are all items that have potatoes in them.  Gone are some of the staples of the menu that were almost synonymous with Taco Bell, like the 7-Layer Burrito (a daily item for me in the summer of 1990 on assignment and living out of a temporary apartment in Louisville). I guess when it came down to it, Taco Bell found that now, while fast food drive through businesses are doing well, that this was the time for change.  It should remind all of us that even while things are good, there is still room for improvement.

And so it is with God.  In our creation story God tells us that what He made was very “good”.  Note, that He did not say, it was perfect, only good and then very good.  Why would God not make something that was perfect for us? I believe it is because perfect leaves no room for improvement for you and me to work and strive to make things better.  If there has ever been a time that we need to look around us and do our part to make improvements, it is now.  So let’ ask ourselves, what areas in our lives, even with what is now good, can we make room for improving?
