Just Because It Feels Right Doesn’t Mean It Is Right

In Matthew 7 we read about the two builders – one chooses a sandy foundation and one choose rock. Sand represents the ever-changing ways of the world, the culture, and its popular opinions. These opinions masquerade as truth. We often hear it called “My truth” or “Your truth” but, that’s not real truth. Basically, that opinion is the kind of “truth” that says what you feel and what you think is true simply because it supports the lifestyle you want to live.⠀

So, this “personal truth” becomes infused with lies that twist the true truth of God’s word. This type of foundation gets built out of what feels right rather than what *is* right… but it’s neither right nor true, nor reliable, 100% of the time. Why? Because this shaky foundation will always shift and change as the culture changes around us. It shifts and changes to suit the ever-changing times… so it won’t support you through and through and it won’t keep you standing firm in your faith at all.⠀

Remember, just because it feels right or it seems right, doesn’t mean it is right. Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25 both tell us, “There is a way that seems right to a man (or woman), but its end is the way to death.” There is a way that is right, and there is a way that is wrong; and there are consequences to both. We’ve got to decide at some point that we are going to choose the right way (the solid Truth of God’s word) and choose against the wrong way (the shaky foundation built on culture and popular opinion) because it’s not the way of true truth. The wrong way always leads to a dead end. But, choosing the way of God’s truth is always the best and right way, because God’s way is never the wrong way. Therefore, God is always right.⠀

I love y’all!⠀
