Psalm 1:1-2: “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.”

In a world that continuously normalizing sin, it is becoming harder and harder to stand strong in the faith that we profess as Christians. The pressure feels even more overwhelming when we are faced in a situation that needs us to actually do what Jesus would. Sadly, in this time and age, people who choose good over evil, kind over cruel and right over wrong, are often branded names such as weird, attention- seeking, awkward, holier-than-thou et cetera! The world as it is, expects people to ‘go with the flow’, whether or not their actions please God. Nevertheless, despite the unending compulsion to ‘enjoy’ and ‘entertain’ sin, it is very possible to lead a righteous life.

Galatians 6:9: “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” Choosing to do the right thing is not always easy. In fact, the opposite often seems comfortable and undemanding. Making the right decision is situations that expect us to actively practice our faith is made even more difficult by those around us. They might question, mock, gossip about and even outright laugh at us for doing good. Others, out of genuine but misguided concern might even make us second-guess our choices. However, the Scriptures encourage us to never tire to do good. In due time, God rewards our good acts with blessings beyond measure.

1 Corinthians 10:13: “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to humanity. God is faithful, and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape so that you are able to bear it.” God stands firm by those who desire to do the right thing even under pressure. And the good news is that although we may hate sin and want to do the right thing, we often fall short because of our sin nature. We all genuinely struggle with sin, but God is faithful to forgive us. God calls us to strive to be holy as He is and intentionally decide to do good even when it is hard.

“Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not”- Oprah Winfrey
