Watching Our Right Hand

English Audio Version

We must do whatever it takes to be honest.

It’s easy. All we do is watch our right hand.

And our left.

It’s there at our side, and all we need to do is glance at it occasionally. It’s not like it will sneak around and get into trouble we’re unaware of.

If our right hand does something, it’s because we want it to. We can’t back up and say, “Oh, I didn’t know, Right Hand. I had no idea you did that.”

So it is with our left. We commit to the action we’re about to initiate because we choose to, and we do it whole-heartedly.

If we have doubts, we’ve already jinxed the outcome before we’ve started.

Romans 14:23 tells us we must be all in.

“But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.”

Our job, be all in. Work as hard as possible.

Marriage. Give it more than a hundred percent.

Sports, computer activities, research . . . whatever it is, don’t hesitate. Just do it.

Our verse tells us that whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats.

Let’s put that another way.

Whoever sees his job as a failure will fail at his job.

Whoever gives less than 100% in his marriage will soon skirt divorce.

Whatever it is, if we don’t have faith in what we’re doing, we can’t do it well. That includes our walk with Christ. We must be all in, not just halfway.

When our faith is strong, we are strong in Christ, and his power will become ours.

When we live in the truth of God’s presence, everything else seems cheap by comparison.
