Just Do the Right Thing

Initiative consists simply of doing the right thing without being told. – I. Mack
Jonathan charged a garrison of Philistine soldiers that led to an Israelite conquest. Was he told to do it? NO! Was he right to do it? YES!
“I wonder what I should do!” It’s a question we often ask ourselves, with hopes someone else will direct us. If we are honest about it, many of us have never outgrown our adolescent need of being told what to do. It’s comforting to us, because it somewhat absolves us of responsibility and inspiration. However, God leaves us with many choices to make; and the one expectation He has in each case is that we will do the right thing. Many of us are waiting for permission to do what God has already commissioned us to do. The charge is to ‘GO’ until we hear God say ‘STOP!’
Until tomorrow……
Pastor Botts
“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” – James 4:17
