Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right…(Philippians 4:8).
“Right” is kind of like “Truth.”
The world will tell you that it is subjective, that what is right for you may not be right for me.
The world is wrong. Enormously, abundantly, horrifically, dangerously wrong.
Wow, Michael, that sounds awfully narrow-minded of you.
“Narrow is the path…” and all that.
You see, it would be different if we had no objective reference point for right and wrong. If we all had to make it up as we go along, you could see how we might wonder about the right and wrong of basic issues.
But we do have an objective reference point.
We just don’t like to look at it sometimes.
For all the things that are unclear in the Bible, there are a whole big hairy bunch of things that are crystal clear.
As you move through your day, focus on that which you know is right. Hey, here’s a thought–if you have a moment, post a comment on one “right” thing we can ponder today. I’ll start us off:
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves (Phil. 2:3).
Happy Thursday, Beloved.
