Right and Convenient

Why do we do what we do?

Does it even matter?
Does it really matter?

Are you simply "looking"
For problems?

Surely at the end of the day
It's only a trifling
Little thing...
Isn't it...?

"My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.
Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life."
(Proverbs 4:20 - 23)

Doing what is "Right" or
Doing what is "Convenient"
Ultimately is a matter
Of the "Heart"...

The "Heart"
For a believer...
For a Christian...
Is more than the organ
That BEATS to keep
Us ALIVE...

"The Lord has sought for Himself 
a man after His own heart"
(1 Samuel 13:14)

The "Heart" is where
Our spirit is
And it is where
The Holy Spirit resides...

So when the Bible
Talks about David
Who would become 
The NEW King of Israel
After King Saul...

God talks about David
As being a "man after
His own heart"
(1 Samuel 13:14)

So if our heart is where
The Holy Spirit connects
With us...
Then surely it is important
Whether or not we do
What is "Right" or
We do what is "Convenient"...

In the case of Joseph
And Potiphar's wife
(Genesis 39)
Joseph did not act
Out of what was 
"Convenient" but
Rather he acted out of what
Was "Right" in the sight
Of God...

Many might argue:
"Who would know...?"

But for Joseph...
"God would know"
And that was enough 
For him to "run from"
Potiphar's wife...

So how is YOUR heart?

Are you at peace
With the decisions
You make...
In life...?

Are you a person
Who believes it is
Important to do
What is "Right"?

Or do you believe
It is simply OK
To do what is 
"Convenient"?

If you learn how to
Listen to your heart...
You will make more
Godly and wise decisions
And choices...
