Just Do It! (Proverbs 14:12)

Just Do It!

If it feels right, do it!

You only live once, go for all the gusto you can!

We live in a culture inundated with advertisements instructing us to follow our indulgences. Don’t deny yourself what life has to offer! Obey your instincts! Sometimes, our instincts do steer us in the right direction, or at least what seems right. Life is a complex maze of competing interests, ours and the world. And if our interests match with the world’s, we perceive that we made the right decision. After all, we often think we are the best qualified person to make that choice. This is not truth, only a relative truth for what we want it to be.  

Thankfully, there is another way.

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.
Proverbs 14:12

The Bible tells us that what man deems right or necessary is not always in his best interests. Only God knows what is the best path for us to take. And when we submit to God’s leading, it is not a life of denial but rather of freedom. It is living a life for which we were created. This is the truth.

Just do it!

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
