What Do I Value

I have asked myself these sobering questions: How will I be remembered when I leave this life? What do I value above all else? Which way do I face? What am I working to become? When people try to save face with men, they can unwittingly lose face with God. Thinking one can facingplease God and at the same time condone the disobedience of men isn’t neutrality but duplicity, or being two-faced, or trying to serve two masters” (Lynn G. Robbins). Of course we want to respectfully coexist with others, but when fear of men tempts us to condone sin, it becomes a cleverly baited snare. The snare is approving of, or even tolerating behaviors that have been condemned by God. I choose to face the Savior, to embrace His doctrine, and to stand as a witness of His truth. It requires moral courage to stand up and speak out for truth when ridiculed or even persecuted. The easier path is silence. I want to combine courage with courtesy and compassion as I speak out and stand up for God’s eternal truths that never change.
