Displaying the Goodness of God  

Romans 12:1-2 & 21 

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
