About how living right helps
2 Samuel 23:3 The God of
Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: `When one rules over men in
righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, 4 he is like the light of
morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that
brings the grass from the earth.' (NIV)
Doing the right thing or living right helps others. We do not always appreciate the importance of our life. We do not always realize how much of a connection we have to the people around us. Because we have such a powerful connection to others, we should live right, do right, and be right. A person who leads a criminal lifestyle hurts others. The person who goes to prison hurts family members who live with the disappointment and emotional pain caused from having a loved one incarcerated. Persons who do wrong things, more often than not, do things directly and openly hurting those around them. Conversely, the way you live your life can help others. Your living right can uplift others. Your righteousness can keep others on the right path. Your righteousness can keep others from making hurtful mistakes. No matter who you are, where you are, or the conditions under which you live, doing the right thing helps those around you. Being righteous, kind, caring, and compassionate gives an incredible gift to those people who know you…and to others you do not know all over the world.
