Sometimes it’s hard to follow the Lord in everything we do. Some days we feel like the perfect role model for a good Christian, and others…well, can be hard to do the right thing. We might be tricked into thinking “it’s okay. I’m a good Christian on Sunday and Wednesday. Oh, and Friday too! It’s okay if I’m not so great those other days, right?” But the answer is “wrong”, even though we don’t want to hear that. It’s not easy, but it’s worth the effort. Remember, every good thing we do earns us reward in heaven! But it shouldn’t just be about a reward. Imagine God looking down on you, smiling at your efforts to stay on the straight path, and giving you a pat on the back. Now imagine Him looking down at you with tears in His eyes, sighing, and looking away from your sin. Which would you rather have? His approval, or His disappointment? I think I can guess.
