If you believe that God exists, then you must understand that there is another "side". Good only exists because evil also exists. Ignoring evil is like ignoring your competition in an athletic event. We can't win if we aren't aware of who we are trying to beat. The blessing is our "teammate" or "coach" or the "owner of the team" always wins. However, as a "player in the game", we must do our part, as well.
Lord, life is more important than any game we may play but we must understand that games exist so we are more aware of the life and death "competition" we experience every day.
