The Question Is, “Is It Pleasing To The Lord?”

I lived on a farm in Georgia as a young boy growing up. I learned how to work hard in the fields. One of our main crops was tobacco. I started attending church in my teens and I never heard the pastor talking about the dangers of smoking. I never heard him group smoking in with all the other sins he’d talk about!

I do remember seeing him along with some of the deacons stand outside after the services and light one up! Some may feel him smoking was wrong, while others would have no problem with it! In the same way some may feel that going to an X Rated movie is OK, while others say it’s wrong!

The question every Christian needs to ask themselves is this, “Is what I’m getting ready to do, say, see, or think pleasing to the Lord?’ You see, once we come to know Jesus we are to walk the way He walked, we are to talk the way He talked, and we are to act the way He acted!

I will say this, if you’re having a problem trying to decide whether somethings right or wrong, it’s probably wrong!

 I John 2:6 says, “He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked!”
