It is my hope that this encourages you today to make…
“Righteousness exalts the nation, but sin is a disgrace to any
people.” Proverbs 14:34
A man’s moral behavior creates a much bigger effect than he thinks.
Choosing to live a righteous life somehow blesses others and even
lifts a nation. God says so. So never minimize the influence a
commitment to righteous living can have. Righteousness has power. One
Righteous Man changed the world. His followers can too.
Sin also has a strong, multiplied effect. It brings shame to the
group, not just the individual. The reproach and loss of confidence
that results stains others too. Like one turnover or bad shot can lead
to another, an apple gone bad really can spoil the bunch. So stop
sinning. Disgrace spreads.
Look to the Righteous One to inspire your belief that living His way
will make a world of difference. And may His Spirit grant you
resurrection power to pursue righteousness passionately and overcome
sin heroically. Not only personal wins but corporate wins await.
Bring honor to Christ.
