Are certain things just wrong?
“For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law.” Romans 2:14 ESV
As Jesus-followers, we find it easy to see that certain things are wrong. It’s not wrong to each a lunch, but it is wrong to do it if you took it from someone else who was just about to eat it. We who follow Jesus and believe in God get our right-and-wrong from him, at least in some degree.
But where do agnostics get it? If you believe the world was an accident, how is there so much purpose in how we all sense that certain things are right and others are wrong?
Today, let’s stay on the side of right. It’s right to do what’s best for someone else. We know it’s right to forgive (Matthew 6:12-15). We know it’s right to put others ahead of ourselves (Philippians 2:3). Ask God to give you a challenge today. What does he ask You to do? Will you do it?
Others don’t even need to know. Just do what Jesus has for you to do today and let him handle the rewards. In Matthew 10:42, we’re promised a reward even for the cold water we hand out. What we do matters and God’s keeping score. Let’s live like we know the rules. It may cause others to ask us why we’re different.
