Can I get an, “AMEN!” ??
Especially in this day and age, doing the ‘right thing’ is really difficult! Back, when I was growing up, doing the ‘right thing’ was the norm. But things have changed drastically!
God said in His Word, “How terrible it will be for those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute what is bitter for what is sweet and what is sweet for what is bitter!” -Isaiah 5:20
Truth be told, this is exactly what is happening today in our world. If you don’t believe it…take a look around you….
Drugs (Marijuana) is now legal…and if you’re into the hard stuff… now instead of having to ‘shoot-up’ in an alley way…there will be “safe sites” set up where drugs will be provided for you! Abortion (murder) is legal, and encouraged as a good alternative. Alcohol is rampant, with the age limit becoming younger and younger. Theft and robbery are on the rise with thieves being so open with their acts, they steal from your front porch. Car jacking in broad daylight. Shootings in any and every place imaginable, you name it…Walmart, McDonald’s, Concerts, Highways, Shopping Malls…. Human trafficking of both sexes, sold to the highest bidder. …. And the list goes on. Not to mention the foul language that fills the air! You can’t watch a new movie any more without the F word being used at least 10 times within the first 30 seconds of the show…and it carries on throughout the movie! Yet, people let their kids watch. It’s like people can’t talk anymore without using curse words.
Now…if you happen to have the courage to stand up and say any of this in public…you are deemed a “Holier than thou”, a “Do-gooder”, “Old fashioned”, “Behind the times”, “Crazy” person for not joining in. You become an outcast. Thus making it difficult to do the ‘right things’.
But, Bob Jones Sr. said this…
DO RIGHT! EVEN IF THE STARS FALL FROM HEAVEN…DO RIGHT!
The Bible puts it this way:
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, (HELL) and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, (HEAVEN) and few there be that find it.
Yeah…it’s hard to ‘do right’…but do it anyway! You’ll find Heaven at the end of the road…
