The Right Thing
June 30, 2017
Maybe Spike Lee was on to something, painting a cinematic portrait of a collective of no-win ambiguities and then asking the rhetorical question, "What do we do?"
He left the answer for the name of the movie, "Do the right thing. "
" Blessed are they who observe justice,
who do righteousness at all times!"
- Psalm 106:3, ESV
We may not always know what the right thing is, but Jesus said that to seek God's kingdom and the intrinsic "rightness" of it would lead to blessing.
The psalmist knew the same reality.
Seek it and do it.
When it was time to make a choice,
Oskar Schindler knew the right thing to do.
And he did it.
