The reading for today is Proverbs 21:15 (NIV).
15 When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
To a Christian, acting with justice and righteousness shouldn’t be a burden. If you choose to do what is right, why not do it with all your might? God’s first command is for us to love Him with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your might (Deut. 6:5). I think as Christians, we are called to serve the Lord with cheerful zeal. Enthusiasm sells! Imagine how much faster and farther the gospel might spread if we all lived the Gospel with great joy!!!
Dear Lord, today I have the opportunity to be joyful and to do something good and just in this sinful world. I pray that You walk with me during this adventure.
