Daily Verse: “An evil man is ensnared in his transgression, but a righteous man sings and rejoices.” Prov. 29:6
Sense of security.
Doing the right thing gives a sense of security. Knowing, whatever the situation, you took the high road and went above and beyond helps us move boldly forward.
On the other hand, when we weave a web of lies and deceit, we’ll find ourselves caught in the net. Recently, a southern reality show captured Ron and I’s attention. One character told so many lies she no longer knew the truth from reality, alienating everyone around her and causing heartache to herself.
We have a choice, high road or low one. Although we can’t control the world around us, we can control how we respond. When difficult situations occur, we can choose to become bitter or better. Bitterness takes root quickly; we must work to become better, not letting the negative emotion begin to grow.
Live a life of singing and rejoicing by consistently doing the right thing. Avoid self-made traps by choosing better over bitter.
Lord, forgive us for choosing the low road and getting entangled in our traps. Please give us the courage to do the right thing, no matter what. Help us become better, not bitter. IJNIP. Amen
