Do What’s Right
You shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord. (Deuteronomy 6:18)
Work and moral ethics may be compromised, because “my boss does it” or “the guy at church does it.” But you and I both know that doesn’t make it right. Too many times we justify our actions because we are comparing ourselves against the wrong measure. God’s Word gives us the proper standard; all else will fall short of the goal.Sometimes life requires us to stand up and be counted. Sometimes we must choose between immediate gratification or denying self. Sometimes we simply must go against the grain because our goal is to please God—not man or even ourselves. In the long run, we will be better people and will be blessed for it. Do what’s right.
