If It Feels Good

Don’t get the idea that God doesn’t want you to have any fun. He wants you to enjoy all the good things He’s put in your life. But you can’t judge what’s right or wrong based on how it feels. You need to go by what God says about it. And if you ever give in and do something wrong, you need to ask Jesus to forgive you. He gives you the power to overcome your feelings and do what’s right.”

Do you think if something seems fun or feels good it must be okay? That’s not what God says. His Word—the Bible—is the standard for what’s right and wrong, not how you feel. So don’t rely on your or anyone else’s feelings to determine whether to do something. Instead, rely on Jesus—He forgives you when you do wrong and gives you the power to do what’s right.

TODAY’S KEY VERSE: Deuteronomy 6:18 (KJV)
Do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with you.
