Some behaviors are like quicksand. They lure you in and then gradually pull you under. Behaviors motivated by feelings and/or desires, are often harmful.
We have the right to agree or disagree with people’s behavior, but we don’t have the right to be unkind to them.
Discovering and stopping our own wrong behaviors, will help us more than looking for other people’s wrong behaviors. No matter how much you blame others for your problems, your behavioral choices have shaped your life.
Though your words may try to hide it, what you believe can be seen in your behavior. Bad outcomes come from bad behavior.
Consistently good behavior is hard to maintain without courage and a strong conscience. Any good behavior I have, comes from Jesus. The bad I’m capable of on my own.
If Jesus isn’t continually influencing your behavior, perhaps you’re following the religious Jesus rather than the living, resurrected One. Following self and following the living Jesus, lead in two different directions.
