Too often we pause to think before doing what’s right. We know what is right, what is good, what is true, but we stop to consider the consequences. We reason, analyze, or assess the prospective outcome. What will my friends think? What will people say? Will I be popular or will I be persecuted? Will I make money or lose money? What might the political ramifications be?
All of those things have a time and place to be considered, but not in comparison to what we know to be right.
I wonder how different the world might be – I wonder how different the church might be – if every time we knew what was right, we just did, and did it just because it was right.
