Finding the courage to do what’s right

May 18, 2020 by Dr. Jack Graham

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

–James 4:17

I have a saying that I use with my children and now my grandchildren. I also share it in counseling situations time and time again. It’s this simple statement: “It’s always right to do right. It is never wrong to do right. It is never right to do wrong.”

Yet in the world in which we live today, morality is such a relative term. People say, “Well, that’s fine and good for you, but don’t impose your morals on me.” And we’ve fallen into an era of moral relativism unlike any our nation has ever seen.

What’s right is right! And under God, His people must take decisive action and stand by what He says is true. If your position is of God, stay with it, because it will never fail. And while the world will go back and forth like the waves of the sea, God’s truth remains planted firmly.

Maybe today, you find yourself struggling with what is right in a certain situation. And maybe you even know what God wants you to do. The question you must ask yourself is, “Am I going to do it?”

God’s Word will never lead you astray. So step out in faith and do what is right. You’ll be glad you did!

IT’S ALWAYS RIGHT TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT. SO WHEN FACED WITH A TOUGH DECISION, DO WHAT GOD SAYS AND YOU’LL NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED!
