Every day people need to decide between what’s right and what’s wrong. Sometimes telling between right and wrong is very obvious. Other times it’s more difficult to discern what’s right and what’s wrong.
When children are young, parents teach their kids what actions are right and what actions are wrong, and typically parents expect their children to follow a set of family rules. Ideally these rules are based on what God says in the Bible.
If their parents are around, kids can depend on their parents to help them decide between what’s right and what’s wrong, and what’s good or evil. God has also given us the Bible to help us understand the difference between righteousness and sin. In addition to the Bible, God gives us His Holy Sprit to serve as our counsellor or guide to help us to become discerning and wise.
Job 34:2-4 “
Hear my words, you wise men, and give ear to me, you who know; for the ear tests words as the palate tastes food. Let us choose what is right; let us know among ourselves what is good.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 “
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”
John 14:26 “
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
