The Right Thing

Doing the right thing may not be easy, of course it certainly is not as Satan is a pretty good planner, but at the end of the day, your heart is not weighed down with the chains of guilt, remorse, regret, woe, and you are not doubled over with the sadness.

Doing the Right Thing: God wants us to obey Him and do His will, regardless of the consequences. And the truth is, doing the right thing is not always easy. Sometimes as Christians we have the false expectation that if we are doing what God wants us to do - than everything will be easy in our lives! But that could not be further from the truth. Jesus set a wonderful example for all of us to follow, for when He was here on earth, He was ridiculed, made fun of, spied on, and lied about - but He kept doing the will of “His Father!” There will be times when we are doing what we “know” God wants us to do, and yet we will suffer rejection, persecution, and hardship. Just because we are “uncomfortable,” or we don’t like being tormented for something we don’t deserve, should not deter us for even a moment from doing God’s will. Jesus warned us that there would be troublesome times in John 16:33 where He says,“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” We need not worry or fear when we are “doing the right thing,” because God will stand by our side - even in the midst of our toughest trial!
