Daily Bible Reading for Wednesday, January 24th:

What is Doing Right?

Some people think they are doing right, but in the end it leads to death. – Proverbs 16:25 NCV

When the Blue Fairy and Jiminy Cricket told Pinocchio to “let his conscience be his guide,” the world thought (and maybe still does) they were getting good sound Bible principles. Here is a little food for thought on this “Disney theology:”

  • The majority of people living in sin are not acting against their conscience.
  • Incorrect worship is sinful yet it usually makes people feel good about what they have “done for God.” (Colossians 2:23)
  • A philanthropist that never obeys the gospel will be passed over at the judgment even though most consider him “good”

What steps are you taking to know that you are “doing right?”
