Day 15 - If it is about God, its About his People - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

2 Corinthians 8:21-(NIV1984)"For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men."

One of the hardest things to determine is what God's will actually is.  This verse makes it really easy.  If it right in God's eyes and right in men's eyes, it it right.

Get's easier. Let me give you an example.  I have a friend that tells me that it does not matter how he lives his life, because he is forgiven, and ONLY God's eyes matter.  Fail.  It does matter.

Get's still easier.  I have friends that think they don't need to pay their taxes, because God does not demand it.  Well, first off, God does demand it. In Luke 20:25 Jesus is asked if they should pay the arch enemy Rome their taxes, and he says, "He said to them, "Then give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." But this verse says more.  How would the rest of the people in your country feel about you, and your faith, if you did not pay taxes?

And it Get's still easier again.  Look at it this way.  We are told that all things work together for those who are called by the Lord, so all you have to do is your best to follow God's word.  But here we are told that one way to make sure we are within God's will is to do things that also makes people see that you are fair, caring and good.

Make it about them. 

Do it for God's children.
