Do the right thing

You who love the LORD, hate evil! He protects the lives of his godly people and rescues them from the power of the wicked. (‭Psalms‬ ‭97‬:‭10‬ NLT)
A sincere purpose to please God will result in an alignment of your desires with God’s desires. You will love what God loves and hate what God hates. If you love the Lord, you will hate evil. If you do not despise the actions of people who take advantage of others, if you admire people who only look out for themselves, or if you envy those who get ahead using any means to accomplish their ends, then your primary desire in life is not to please God. Learn to love God’s ways and hate evil in every form—not only the obvious sins but also the socially acceptable ones. (Tyndal Study Bible)
What stands out again are these Biblical truths. Just accept these and you will be cool.
Yesterday you were invited to receive God’s love. Here is another. Accept his principles, those that make you humble and peaceful. They are there for all to accept.
It’s not about the dont’s, but about the do’s. Everything about God is doing. Doing the right thing, and things will be awesome for you.  You don’t even have to study the Bible, your instinct just tells you, “that’s wrong.”  The results will be amazing if you do study the Bible.
Using Facebook at work is not wrong, but too much of it is. Are you doing justice to those who rely on you? Yes you know it’s wrong. So what’s the right thing to do, work diligently? Yes, the rewards will be enormous.
So just as David those many years ago, just do the right thing.
I feel I should say this, don’t do things that are wrong because everybody does it. If it’s wrong, it’s wrong, not right because others are doing it.
“Lord I pray that we do the right thing and that You will guide us. I thank you for all your greatness. In Jesus name. Amen”
