Learn to Do Right

 

And also the words written in Isaiah 1:17,"Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!" 1 John 3:16 says, "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers."

The bible says stop doing wrong and do right. Although the verse in Isaiah is talking about doing right and tohelp the widows and the fatherless I think it applies to many things. Stop doing wrong and do right. I have said this to myself often.

How do we stop doing wrong? Well, I think the answer is simple but yet it can take a little while to learn. Just don't start doing wrong. Obviously, it is much easier if you never start a bad habit. Many addicts start off saying, " I can stop anytime". For example, if you think that watching porn a few times is O.K. , well it is not. These images enter your mind and take a long time to get rid of. Many couples might want to spice up there marriage with pornography and think it is fine. Or sometimes it is just one person in the marriage who does this. Eventually this type of behavior can bring many other heartaches to the marriage. It is foolish to think that it doesn't happen to Christian couples. Pray about your marriage if you are bored. We were arguing because we didn't seem to have much in common. I did this, I started praying that God would help us have more things in common. Slowly and surely we started developing some new interests. I was an outdoors type of person and my husband was more of an indoor person. He liked shopping and I didn't. Now we both love fishing, camping and I do shop with him, but only at outdoor type of stores. We are much happier.

Hi Sky,

As a pastor, I see the problem of pornography almost on a daily basis. I think it may be more of a problem in the church that it is in the world. Thanks for making it known.
