Knowing the Right Thing to Do But…..


I know the right thing for the most part. But doing it is sometime difficult to do.


Oh boy, I am in trouble.

We have to make many tough choices in our lifetime. We do them as we deem necessary. Sometimes, though, they are decisions that fit our current station in life or lifestyle. Many people end up choosing the wrong choice and they know better. But it was the easy way out. It was the easy path.

Are we willing and able to be strong? To do what is necessary? To bear the burdens of a right decision?

According to the Bible in James 4:17 NIV it states:

If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Here are some Bible Verses about doing the right thing.

We live in a time where people are falling by the wayside daily.  We could just sit by and talk about how evil they must have been or we could realize that we are just as capable of doing the same.  Paul gives Timothy three keys that will help him to stay the course.  I dare say that if we could grasp these things we too would be safe in the midst of dangerous days.

Almost every day the news has a story or two about prominent people that get into trouble by doing some harmful or bad. Why do these people that have so much, do terrible things? Do they feel invincible? Do they feel they are either above the law or can buy their way out?

They appear to be thrill seekers and lack morality. All people are not good people that is a fact.  You don’t have to be a star to find trouble. Good people, or what appears to be a good person, find ways to do bad things.

We expect people to be good and some would say we expect them to be perfect. That isn’t going to happen. People are flawed and need help. The can find it if they would allow themselves to attend church. Remember, church goers are like hospital patients, they are there because they need help.

What do you think?

“The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.”
