Is this your goal today? Really? Do you want someone watching you to say that you have demonstrated the “good” (2896a) and the “righteous” (6662) or would you rather have them admire your style? Would you rather be thought cool than upright?
Sometimes we mess up because that is the desire of our heart. We think that traditional virtues such as prudence and chastity are so old school. We want to be with it. So we do not seek to follow the way God would have us go.
(Jas 4:2 KJV) Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.So? Take a moment to examine your goals and attitudes for today. Only you know what the real desires of your heart are. Only God hears what you are really asking for. If the results are in order, praise God. If you find dissonance, then repentance is in order.
