Do the Right Thing

url-1You can do what you want to do. Really. You are free. No one can make you do anything. You have freedom and you have a choice.

Us that wisely. Today, as you do what you want to do, do the right thing. Do the good thing. Do thing that you want to do.

You have freedom.

Now, do the right thing. What does mean?

Listen to what Paul says in Galatians 5:13-15:

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.

You are called to freedom. Jesus came to set you free. But, you are to use that freedom for what is right. What is that?

Seve one another through love. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. That’s your calling and that’s what you were set from sin for. To love.

Love God, love each other.

That’s what freedom is for.

So, what if we don’t use our freedom in that way? What if we use it for ourselves, our desires, and what we want?

Then Paul says this – if you bite and devour one another be careful you are not consumed by each other.

Today, do the right thing. Love. Love each other. Take care of each other. Look out for each other.

Today, we have freedom. We have the chance to do what we want. Make sure we choose to love God. Love each other. Take care of each other.

Be salt and light. Love as God has loved us.
