Living Life Recovery Reflection #237

The Right Thing

1 Peter 3:10 Scripture says, “Do you want to love life and see good days? Then keep your tongues from speaking evil. Keep your lips from telling lies.

Because God is watching and listening to our recovery He will take care of us when we do the right thing. He wants us to the right thing all of the time but He also knows because we are human we won’t always do the right thing.

He also wants us to do what He considers the right thing, not what we consider to be the right thing. We learn what God thinks is the right thing through reading His Word. We also know what God considers to be the right thing through our consciences.

All of us have a God-built system of knowing what is right and what is wrong but we need to pay attention to it.

  • When have You done what God wanted instead of what you wanted because it was the right thing to do?

 

Prayer: God help me to see and do the right thing in every situation I find myself in today.
