1 John 3:10 Here is how you can tell the difference between the children of God and the children of the devil. Those who don’t do what is right do not belong to God. Those who don’t love their brothers and sisters do not belong to him either.
Doing the right thing isn’t a recovery option, it’s a necessity. I have seen people in recovery who want to appear to do the right thing but don’t. As it says in our scripture today our actions and our attitudes identify those among us who are serious about life change. You can’t be successful in recovery and keep your old habits and attitudes. Eventually, if you do that you will relapse.
Doing the right thing isn’t always easy but it is always possible. The Bible tells us God always provides a way out of difficult situations for us. (1 Corinthians 10:13)
- When have you been tempted to do the wrong thing and God has provided a way out?
Prayer: Lord help me to stay true to You through Your provision to me.
