A trait of virtue is doing the right thing even when you don’t feel like it. (Stonestreet and Kunkle, authors)
When being watched closely, probably most people will try to do the right thing. But, what if no one’s watching or no one will likely find out what you’re doing? How do you respond to the temptation to follow your feelings, which don’t always lead you to the right choice? Virtue is conforming to what is right. Making the right choice is always an evidence of true virtue.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out (Proverbs 10:9).
