18-08: Do The Right Thing!

Do the right thing! 

Quote
Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’.  Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’.  Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’. But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’.  And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.~
 
Meditation
Oftentimes, doing that which is right will go against what others may think, even your own "natural" tendencies, and require that you risk standing against formidable opposition.  While it may seem difficult in the moment, it is that chosen course of action that will return the greatest reward, and provide ongoing peace and contentment.  Ultimately your actions will demonstrate which path you’ve chosen.  When you take a long-term viewpoint, not one that seeks to do what appears easiest in the moment, your gut will congratulate you, your spirit will rest and God will rejoice in his child’s (that’s you) progress.
 
Thought for the day
Do not be afraid to go against the flow…people pleasing is for wimps and cowards.   Remember, if you don’t stand for something…you will fall for everything! Do the right thing! 

Scriptures
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. ~Proverbs 14:12~

And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD swore unto thy fathers. ~Deuteronomy 6:18~

{So] they summoned them and imperatively instructed them not to converse in any way or teach at all in or about the name of Jesus.  But Peter and John replied to them, Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you and obey you rather than God, you must decide (judge), but we [ourselves] cannot help telling what we have seen and heard.     ~Acts 4:18-20 (Amp)~

About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
