It’s not easy to do the right thing but there’s great reward in doing what’s right – My Dad
It’s always easier to do what’s wrong and maybe even sweeter or faster but there are consequences for making a decision to go the wrong way.
Personally, besides not pleasing God, I try to do the right things through the help of the Holy Spirit because I’d rather have peace and know my integrity is not at stake. Peace to me is one of the many rewards a person gets from doing the right thing.
I’ll share a few scriptures that touch on doing what’s right and I pray beginning from today, the strength and grace we need to continue to do the right things be available to us, in Jesus name. Amen 🙏🏼
“If you sin without knowing what you’re doing, God takes that into account. But if you sin knowing full well what you’re doing, that’s a different story entirely. Merely hearing God’s law is a waste of your time if you don’t do what he commands. Doing, not hearing, is what makes the difference with God.
“When outsiders who have never heard of God’s law follow it more or less by instinct, they confirm its truth by their obedience. They show that God’s law is not something alien, imposed on us from without, but woven into the very fabric of our creation. There is something deep within them that echoes God’s yes and no, right and wrong. Their response to God’s yes and no will become public knowledge on the day God makes his final decision about every man and woman. The Message from God that I proclaim through Jesus Christ takes into account all these differences.”
