The ONE THING for today

Do Right?

  • Amos 3:10 (NKJV) For they do not know to do right,’ says the Lord, ‘Who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.’”

Virtually every day you are faced with the choice of deciding if you want to be liked or do right. turn-right

Whether it is a parent or the person behind the checkout counter, whether it is a teenager dealing with peer pressure or a salesman dealing with the pressure of making their number–we all deal with this issue.

The ramifications are huge.  Short-term, being liked is always the most desirable choice, but long-term, compromising on doing the right thing at the expense of being liked will deliver disastrous results.

So what to do?

Try to do the right thing in the most likable way possible, but if that option is not available, then take the heat and do right.

Looking back over the journey of your life someday, you will never regret having gone the right way when you had to make a choice.
