6.6. Know the good, but doing the bad – Jms 4:17 – Darkness – 6 of 13

Think back about studying for exams…

All of a sudden you have to rearrange your room, visit an ooooold buddy and going to the movies never have been this fun but in the back of your head you know you should be studying.

When that exam paper comes and you look through those questions, you know that you have been procrastinating and avoid taking response-ability.

But then it is too late. Regret always comes too late.

I think that is what God is communicating to us in this verse.

Verse for Today:

Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins. – Jms 4:17

I think the first question that comes to mind is, do you know what the good is in God’s eyes?

We have been studying out what is bad; the sins of commission 1 & 2.

And the good; seeking God, reading your bible, being a disciple and seeking first his kingdom.

So are you seeking to do the good?

Prayer for Today:

Lord I know the good I ought to do but sometimes I just doing have the character to do it.

Help me to put you first and not the world.

Help me to find friends that also seek to do the good.

I pray that I will develop the faith that makes me take response-ability. Amen.
