Daily Declaration: If you know better, you do better

Devotional: If you know

Everything you know is a result of having an experience. Trial and error. Learning and expanding our knowledge to gain a better perspective of that thing. What do you do with what you know? Even if you wanted, you can’t “un-know” something. Forgetting doesn’t count because you still know. You just didn’t recall it initially, but the knowledge is in there. If you witness an accident or crime, you are supposed to tell the truth. Tell authorities what you saw. The same is true of how we should live. God has placed a moral compass inside of us as a result of Adam and Eve’s poor choices. We know naturally what is right and what is wrong. The Holy Spirit guides us. We have the freedom to chose to listen and respond, or ignore and go our own way. As we experience God and learn more about him, we become better. When you know better, you do better.

 

Scripture:
Luke 6:45 ESV
The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
