Two wrongs don’t make a right… But two ‘Right’s often make a ‘wrong’.
Just because you think you have a ‘Right’ to do something, does not make that something the RIGHT thing to do.
Your Rights are NEVER to be seperated from your Responsibilities (to others, as well as to yourself!)
The Right thing to do is seldom the one we think of first! (and never if the only love in it is love of self. ie. from ego)
‘God-given’ Rights are rarely the ones we claim they are and are never given without a commensurate Responsibility we need to observe and obey.
It is not a matter of being on the ‘winning side’ – but of being on the ‘Right’ side. ie. His side.
It is important for each of us that we are on His ‘side’ and not on the side of those who, out of pride and envy, vainly boast Him to be on ‘theirs’.
God is not on your side – He’s on His. All are welcome to join Him. All it will cost you is your life.*
* for any who might be so inclined – taking another’s life from them when you give up yours to Him definitely excludes you from membership! 😉
