The appearance of good.

“There is always the temptation in life to diddle around making itsy-bitsy friends and meals and journeys for years on end. It is all so self conscience, so apparently moral…But I won’t have it. The world is wilder than that in all directions, more dangerous…more extravagant and bright. We are…raising tomatoes when we should be raising Cain, or Lazarus.”

Annie Dillard

We often invoke Scripture to admonish others to avoid the appearance of evil.  We seldom apply the same rebuke when it comes to avoiding the appearance of good.
