    It pays to do good and live right in the way of the Lord. Living for the moment is living in sin, don't concern your self for the right now . Keep your eyes on JESUS, and in your due season you will weep your reward, Iin Christ.

    Psalm 1:2 "But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law does he meditate both day and night." Amen. This is one verse that says God's word does tell us what we should do; delight in the law of the Lord, and meditate on his law both day and night!
  • Lance Brown
    the Word doesnt tell us what to do. It only tells us we will prosper and be blessed. God leaves what we do as our choice. Because God prospers us we take that as a sign we are doing right, when we are not. 'Lord did we not prophesy in your name ? And do many miracles ? 'Get away from me I never knew you !'. God inhabits His Praise: we praise God
  • Abraham
    The Word of God is instructs us what is not to do, what we should do and then it says what you will get by doing so.
  • Bro. Wm
