Proverbs 28:13 Proverbs 28:13 He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
Everything That Seems Right Is Not Always Right
Its alright as long as you dont hurt anybody but yourself. Wrong doing hurts the Lord Heb.6:4-6 Wrong doing hurts fellow church members 1 Cor. 12: And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Dont Go On Feelings Alone
Prov. 14: The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish. 12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. 13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness. 14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.

Phil. 4: Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Gen. 13:7-13 7And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land. 8And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. 9Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. 10And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. 11Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other. 12Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. 13But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Do We Know When We Are Wrong? Sometimes we think that we are right when we are wrong. Read 1 Tim. 1:12-15 Sometimes we know exactly what we are doing James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. Heb. 10:26 If we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the thruth,there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.
