The Other 6 (Day 31)
Inviting People to Church // Section 1: Earning the Right to Talk
If we follow God, naturally we will be doing what is right (for the most part) in the eyes of man. This is because God’s truth about good conduct is planted in every person that He’s created and there’s a general consensus about what morality looks like. This passage is simply warning us that we can’t just follow God, but be jerks to those around us, cheat others, or not follow basic laws that are recognized by men.
We strive to be right in the eyes of the Lord, but also in the eyes of man. Certainly we don't concede to any type of worldly morality that might go against what God has for us, but when it comes to the things of the world that are considered kind, good, hospitable, etc. we should be at the forefront.
Practical Steps: Pray that God opens your eyes to any areas of your life where you’re saying you’re a Christian, but aren’t living a life that reflects it.
