Do the Right Thing

Description

Doing good things when no one is watching is a really good thing for your character, but doing the right thing when people are watching may have an impact on your relationships that you can never measure.

Philippians 1:27-30 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him, since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.

I’ve heard it said that character is what you do when no one is watching. That may be, but I think of the things that I do when people are watching. When my wife sees me yell at the TV over a lost ball, when my kids see me fuming over a car that gets in my way, when my dog sees me angry that I have to get up and let him out.

Doing good things when no one is watching is a really good thing for your character, but doing the right thing when people are watching may have an impact on them that you can never measure.
