Many people of my age were taught the importance of always doing the “right thing” as this was the key way to prominence in each area of life. I heard this admonition a few times but seldom observed it being put into practice.
At age 20 Jesus Christ entered my life, and a change in thought patterns came along with Him. I began to think and feel an urge to “do the right thing.”
The proverbial wall was hit head-on as I attempted to figure in several situations, what is the right thing?
The historically famous Emperor, Charlemagne said:
“Right action is better than knowledge; but to do what is right, we must know what is right.” Charlemagne.
If you feel that you are not a good Christian due to your lack of ability to determine just what is the right thing, keep in mind this line of thought from the Apostle Paul, writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit:
Philippians 1:22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell.
23 For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better.
24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. (NKJV).
In many of life’s decisions, the what to do is right in front of our eyes, clearly laid out in the pages of Holy Writ. Yet others?
