A recent situation caused me to reflect on “doing the right thing.” There will be times in our life where we may be the victim of others doing the wrong thing but that should never sway us into doing what’s wrong. C.S Lewis said “integrity is doing what’s right even when nobody is watching.” Are we living a life of integrity today? God tells us that we must live righteously, we need to do the right thing in order to set examples for others and in order to have life. No matter who has wronged you, pray about forgiveness and try your best to do the right thing. When you make choices remember that if nothing else you can enjoy the fact that you did the “right” thing, regardless of what others are doing.
Proverbs 11:19New King James Version (NKJV)19 As righteousness leads to life,So he who pursues evil pursues it to his own death.
