God cares about doing what is right. The Bible calls this righteousness. We might call it morality.
God is moral. Some people think God is love…and they are right. Love is the ultimate morality. Morality is the full expression of love.
If you want to give God the cold shoulder, don’t give any regard to what’s moral. Focus instead on your pleasures, your wealth, your approval in the eyes of other people.
However, if you don’t want to give God the cold shoulder, think about your life today in terms of right and wrong – that is, in terms of love versus selfishness. Think about how you can lay your life down for others – how you can seek what’s good for them instead of seeking what’s good for yourself. You don’t have to become a missionary to some far flung land to do this. Start living for your family and friends. If you already think you live selflessly toward them, ask Jesus to open your eyes to what you might be missing.
