Always do what is right. It will gratify half of mankind and astound the other. (Mark Twain, humorist, author)
Everyone will agree, no doubt, that we ought always to do what is right. But, who determines right and wrong? Is there a universal standard, or is ethical behavior decided by the changing whims of society? Since we can’t seem to agree on what moral behavior is, we must discover a fixed standard of conduct. And there is one.
To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice (Proverbs 21:3).
