Live righteously (Isaiah 32:17)

And the effect of righteousness will be peace,
    and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.

Can someone get tired of doing good? When you have been mocked and misunderstood for your motives; when despite being good, others still treat you unfairly; when the time comes that you need those whom you’ve helped turn their backs on you–I think the obvious answer would be YES. Sometimes, it’s exhaustive to become consistently righteous.

When the time comes that you feel tired of being righteous, look up and you’ll find an inspiration. Jesus became a man and he had experienced the things we had encountered. His was even worst! Yet He stayed sinless until His very last breath at the Cross of Calvary.

We are rewarded based on our actions, though there are times we’ve been blessed even if we don’t deserve it. For every action there is always a result, a corresponding consequence. If we stay upright, we can expect to attain peace, quietness and trust forever unlike when we are wicked, the effect would be the opposite. So before we expect something good to happen, we should first bear in mind to do the things that could attract blessings.

If we want to live a life worth living, live righteously.
