How's That Working For You?

Judges, Doing What's right, Letting God judge values
When people try to justify foolish behavior, a well-known television counselor asks them, "How's that working for you?"

It's a good question in many ways.

However, it's not a Biblical question.

Just because a behavior "works for us" - makes us happy, fits our lifestyle, seems to cause no harm - doesn't mean it's right.

The book of Judges is about a time - not unlike our own - when people "did as they saw fit" - "did what was right in their own eyes" - did what worked for them (Judges 17:6).

Modern culture defies, challenges and even mocks Biblical moral values. Each man judges his actions by what works for him, even when it's damaging his soul. 

But Christians are called to a different standard. We judge all things by Scripture. We seek to do what is right in God's eyes, not our own.

We trust in the Lord's wisdom, not our own (Proverbs 3:5-6).
