Do not expect things to get better in order to do what is RIGHT, choose to do what is RIGHT first for things to change.
It’s like an unspoken agreement: “If my life is good or improving, I will be a good person and do what is right! Otherwise, I wont be interested, why should I do what is right and be a good person?”.
You may not believe, but there are more people than you can imagine thinking that way. Spending their lives making silent agreements, even with God, deciding who to recognize, who to obey, who to love, only if He meets their requirements; otherwise they choose to disown Him, leave Him or even curse Him.
None of these things are often verbalized, but God better than anyone, knows the human heart and knows when he is acting out of interest or well intention. But lets go through this in parts, which is what is doing the right thing? You do what is true and right, where you have no doubt or be questioned. And in what circumstances or what issues should you do what is right?
In any circumstances or any and all subjects: whether in good or bad times, for good and bad people, the “insignificant” or important things and whether we win or lose it. Doing what is right must be something independent of everything, even of our own will.
This is the silent agreement that life, GOD, and we can all do with you. Doing what is right regardless of everything and everyone, and your life will change dramatically. Try it and see if it’s not true.
Those who consciously commit injustices are reaping tears which they will cry when they sow injustice tomorrow. This is the universal law of life. What goes around, comes around. What you do to others will come back to you.
Observe this law in action around you. There’s no judge, court, or police force to enforce it. Just the same this law is in action for everyone. You can see it when you study history. You can see it in your life. There’s a higher power which makes it comply:
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Galatians 6:7 NKJV
But in the moment of doing something unjust, especially when it benefits you temporarily, the tempting thought is: “You’re going to benefit. No one will know. You can do it, too bad for those who can’t.”
Fall for this temptation at your own risk. The best alternative is to always be just, no matter what, even if you’re apparently losing.
