2 Corinthians 13:7, NIV: Now we pray to God that you will not do anything wrong. Not that people will see that we have stood the test but that you will do what is right even though we may seem to have failed.

It has been said there comes a time when we must make a choice between what is right, and what is easy. The choice is certainly not always easy to make. For there is a very powerful part of who we are that entices us to seek and take the easy way. And it is so very easy to reason with ourselves until we either make a wrong choice, or miss the opportunity to do right altogether. Perhaps you remember when Jesus said, “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Many of us understand that all too well. But total victories are seldom won with one battle. It takes time and determination to win the war against the tendency to take the easy way. And in time, we will see that doing the right thing is something we will do more frequently. You never know, at some point what is right may become to us easier than doing something else. After all, with God, all things are possible.
