Snapping her fingers and shuffling her feet
Singing do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
She looked good, looked good

She looked good, she looked fine
And I nearly lost my mind
 (Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich)
 
Why!!!???

Because what good is something unless there exists the opportunity to use or exercise it? Now, don’t get smart! This is not about, “do wah diddying”.

Impurity which does not occur due to lack of opportunity to be impure is not being pure, is not purity.

When he was of age to begin school, Aron was fortunate in that a school for the blind was a short bus ride from him home. For several months his momma rode the bus with him to school each day, and met him at school each day for the bus ride home.

God has given us an actual list and a set of instructions by which He has instructed us to live our lives, and informed us of character traits and qualities which He desires us to acquire, exercise, and live. He has explained the reasons, reasonings, and purposes for each of these. Generally we have labeled some of these as The Ten Commandments, The Two Great Commandments, the Corporal and the Spiritual Works of Mercy, The Beatitudes, and the natural and spiritual or Divine virtues.

What example would we have if Jesus had not changed water into wine at Cana - if He had done nothing to alleviate the situation?

What example would we have if God had not responded favorably to the prayers of the church when Herod imprisoned Saint Peter?

What example would we have if the Apostles and Disciples had not followed Our Lord’s instructions and
