Doing the right thing is always the best thing to do


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times Doing the wrong thing simply for the thrill of doing what is not permitted may seem like fun, but in point of fact more often than not it lands those who do in trouble, sometimes a great deal of trouble. Doing the right thing because it is the right thing to do may seem dull to those who want to do the wrong thing, but in point of fact it is not dull because it opens a world of opportunities to those who strive to always do right. That’s because doing the right thing frees us to truly live and explore and act upon the opportunities life presents us for self-improvement and advancement, helping others, contributing to the community, and serving God. This is far more rewarding than the cheap, temporary and often dangerous thrill of doing what’s wrong, because doing what’s wrong can narrow our opportunities in life by leaving us injured or even dead, ruining our reputation, alienating friends and family, reducing employment opportunities, putting us on the wrong side of the law and all that can entail, and, worst of all, cause us to lose out on spending eternity with God. As the first humans learned when they disobeyed God and ate the original forbidden fruit, doing the wrong thing will land you in a jam that can cost you everything. It is a lesson the human race is still learning much to its sorrow.
