Don’t Be A Fool

And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the LORD, that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land of which the LORD swore to your fathers. ~Deuteronomy 6:18

You shall do what is right and good -{In the sight of the LORD.}-  Not in your own sight, not in the world’s sight, but in the LORD’s sight.  God sets the standard for what is right and good, no one else, not ourselves, not our friends, not our culture, not even the Church, but God and God alone.  We need to remember this and keep this tucked away in our hearts or we we may be counted as fools.

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who heeds counsel is wise. ~ Proverbs 12:15

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be considered a fool. I would rather be considered wise.  And who is the wisest Counselor of them all?  Jesus, of course, and we have been invited into a relationship with Him, one in which we can come to Him whenever we want and seek His counsel.  He desires that we speak with Him and He is faithful to respond.

Let us be quietly reminded today to seek His counsel through prayer, study of The Word and fellowship with other believers so that we may know how to do what is right and good in the sight of the LORD.
