Have you ever watched that show “What would you do?” It is a show where people are put in a controversial situation that is meant to get a reaction from the people around. Something like someone leaving their wallet on a table, or leaving a restaurant without paying the bill, or being rude to people around. Somewhere during the show, the host pops out and asks people why they acted the way they did. I love that show, because it reminds me of the good that is in people.
Our life is a reminder of that in a nut shell. We are faced every day with choices, choices that stretch us, that challenge our moral compass and how we go about who we are. And as we go about life, trying to do the right thing, maybe we should ask a second question: Why we do it all?
When life gets bumpy, I try to remember that.
Colossians 3:17 New International Version (NIV)
17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
I want to encourage you today to do good, to go the extra mile, to be positive and see the best in people even when the road is bumpy. Why? Because you know who you are in Christ, and you know what you are called to do.
Live High! Live mighty! Live Righteously!
