relationship with God

Cultivating Righteousness (Matthew 5)

Painting by Kathy Powell

God Spoke to me and said “Doing a good thing, is not always the right thing.”

What does that mean?

The Fruit of righteousness has to do with accuracy (God fruit)

“the right thing at the right time” is better than just ‘doing good things.”

God wants us to have pin point accuracy! To cultivate fruits of righteousness in our lives, and to Hunger and Thirst after this (Matthew 5) means we are always seeking the will of our Father for every situation (just as Jesus did).

Therefore, God often does not work in terms of “recipe’s” but he takes the main ingredients of his will, and tailor’s it to fit the situation (or person). Doing the right thing means we are doing what HE wants us to do, “right then” .’

It speaks of being yoked to Jesus continually, walking in step with him…side by side, always doing his bidding.

This is so far from religious dogma, that a person who does this, may just find themselves at “odds’ with some people. They are not bad, you are not necessarily better than they are, but you have made the wiser decision.
