Do What Is Right

Were given many choices in life. When we come to a fork in the road, we have the choice to go either left or right. When we come to a crossroad, we can either turn around, go left, right, or keep straight ahead.

Naturally, we will make decisions that make us feel the most comfortable at the time. We feel that whatever makes us comfortable is the decision to make. When in actuality, the comfortable decision isn’t always the right decision.

In other words, the decision that’s pleasing to the flesh isn’t always the decision that God wants you to make. He want you to be a person of integrity. He wants you to make decisions that have an overall positive impact on life.

In every aspect of your life, you should want to do what is right. But it’s often easier said than done. Sometimes, doing what is right is putting others first for a change. Doing what is right is going home to study when your friends want to go party.

Doing what is right may mean saving money rather than spending it on that dress down at the corner shop. It may mean arriving to work ten minutes early so that you’re working by eight o clock on the dot. Doing what is right may mean eating a salad rather than something that’s fattening. What’s right could mean helping a neighbor carry in the groceries.

When making the decision to do whats right it may put us out of our comfort zone and that’s natural. But know that in the long run those right decisions that you make will have a better impact on your life and the life of another. Make a decision today to do what is right as you charge forth on your journey of life!

    Hi Jarrod,

    Doing what is right isn’t always fun but it leads to something better: your growth as a human being.

    We are faced with choices from moment to moment. Our internal guide – the conscience – points the way. We need only listen.

    Thanks for sharing your insight.
