"Even as we think we’re doing good"

President Obama’s words at a slave trading post in Ghana should be sobering for all of us. I assume he intends the warning not just for others, but also for himself. God, please help all of us see those actions (including inaction or tolerance) we intend for good, but are actually evil.

Sometimes we can tolerate great evil, even as we think we’re doing good…As painful as it is, it helps to teach all of us that we have to do what we can to fight against the kinds of evils that sadly still exist in our world, not just on this continent [Africa] but in every corner of the globe. — Barack Obama
