If It Is Wrong – Don’t do It

by on September 3, 2013

 

What is so difficult about that? Can’t you tell if it is right or wrong? Can’t you decide what to do? Can’t you act on what you know is right? If it is right and it is the right time, then do it. If it is wrong then it cannot be the right time. Don’t do it.

Don’t do things that are wrong. Don’t let other people to do things that are wrong. Stop. What is your problem? When you do what is wrong, you hurt yourself, you hurt other people, you hurt the community, you hurt God.

Real women and real men say ‘no’ to what is wrong. Don’t they get tempted? Of course they do. Then why do they not sin? Because they do not do what is wrong. They do what is right. Whether it feels good or not, they do what is right. They do not do what is wrong. It is just that simple.

Real women and real men stop other people from doing what is wrong. They speak out when wrong happens. They speak out against the wrong and they speak out against the people who are doing the wrong. They are not controlled by convention. They are not bullied by bullies. They are not silenced by seducers.

They speak out and tell the truth of what is happening. They never get caught in group-think. If they feel themselves being seduced by speeches, they stop. Stop and think. They stop and think about what should be and then they do what is right.

There are people like this around you. They may be hard to find but they are there. Watch, and when you find them, watch some more so you learn that truth and integrity are possible in your environment. They are not prominent politicians. They are not typically high profile persons. But, women and men of truth are there. They may not be rich. They may not be popular. But they are there.

They are God’s people. They are incarnating God to their world. They are doing what is right.

  • Whether it is popular or not – they do what is right.
  • Whether anyone follows them or not – they do what is right.
  • Whether they are mocked or not – they do what is right.
  • Whether they are noticed or not – they do what is right.
  • Even when it costs them everything – they do what is right.

 

These are women and men of whom this world is not worthy.

The world will never understand them.

They are not of this world system.

They are not impressed with power and things.

They understand the real value of power and things.

They understand the value of people.

They do not exploit people.

They do not mock people.

They love people – even people who hate and destroy them.

  • You know that you can always trust them.
  • You know that they will always care for you.
  • You know that they will never hurt you.
  • You know that you are always safe with them.
  • You know that they truly love you.
  • You know that they will tell you the truth.

Because, they do not do what is wrong  – they do what is right

They are of all people most blessed.

Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished:

but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered. Proverb 11:21
