"If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it." - Genesis 4:7
When we do what is right, not by us, but by God, we gain a momentum to our lives through it. But when we do what is wrong, we lose that momentum, that movement, and stop following God in our moment of failure. We often feel as if we are dragging our feet through the muck in life. With a short review, we can see that our choices have stopped us from moving at all.
Ignore all that is not right, that is not good, that is not of God. We must get moving, we must finish the race.
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
- 2 Timothy 4:7
