Wise words, don’t you think? In essence, we’re being asked to pursue lives of virtue. Put another way, as a children of God, we know when He is leading us to stand up for something (or someone), because it is the right thing to do; while at other times, He may call us to walk away, simply because He is God. We may not understand why for quite some time (or ever), but our role here is to respond in obedience.
I think the key for us here is to be ready to spring into action – whether it be to take a stand or take a walk, so to speak – at any time. We must remain observant to what is happening around us, and be prepared to take whatever next step the Lord shows us.
And let’s remember that the Lord is a Gentleman – He never forces Himself on anyone. Therefore, the choice – to pursue lives of virtue, or lives of convenience – is always ours to make. 🎯
