Embrace That Which is Right
Today I read Amos 5 where the Lord admonishes the Israelites to seek out that which is good and right and to avoid doing the wrong things. It never fails to amaze me how Satan has done such a good job of convincing the world that sin is fun. Everywhere you look we are inundated with commercials of people doing that which is wrong and it seems like so much fun. We have become convinced that sin is the right thing to do and that to not allow sin is a crime. Just take a look at marriage for homosexuals. We all know that homosexuality is a sin and yet Satan has managed to convince the vast majority of the country that if we don't allow them to live their lives as they see fit, we are bigots. Satan has made us completely overlook that it is possible to love the person but condemn the act. He is very good at what he does and he is extremely clever. He makes his arguments seem so logical and right. But deep down we all know what is really right. Unless we have smothered the Light of Christ in each one of us, we know the right path for us to take. We know that we should be standing up for what is right. We can't fall into the trap of thinking that tolerance means acceptance. It doesn't! We need to embrace the right and cling to it. Until tomorrow.
