STOP!


Doing what is good and what is right all the time is not an easy task. It is a continuing struggles in our lives. I often heard myself saying, "How I wish that there is a STOP sign in front of me every time I am about to do something "not good" or something "not right". Of course, this can't happen... or at least, this can't happen literally, but the Holy Spirit and His word are there guiding us in the right way to do through regular prayer and regular study of the Holy Bible. In that way, we will know when to stop.
.
And here is one easy way to avoid doing wrong to others; "Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:39 NIV Of course, we wouldn't lie to ourselves; we wouldn't do something to hurt ourselves; we wouldn't cheat to ourselves; and above all, it is our natural characteristics that we love ourselves no matter what. If that is how we treat others, loving them as we love ourselves, we can't go wrong in any way. There will be no need for a STOP sign.
