At least 5 times it is written in Scriptures “right in his own eyes.” (Deuteronomy 12:8, Judges 17:6, Judges 21:25, Proverbs 12:15, Proverbs 21:2).
At least 24 times it is written in Scriptures “right in the eyes of the Lord.” (Deuteronomy 12:25-28, 2 Chronicles 25:2, etc.).
Two different attitudes:
- I will do things my way in everything. My way is best.
- I will do things God’s way in everything. His way is best.
We see the results today where most does what is right in their own eyes. It is chaos. One group says this is best, and another no it is not best.
Where are the standards and whose standards do we follow?
It seems best to follow the standards of the one who made us. He made us to function in a certain way. This is an optimal way for healthy societies, family, work, finance, farming, individual, etc. to function.
Consider how the society would improve if we follow these 6 Laws of God
- Wickedness (James 1:21)
- All malice (1 Peter 2:1)
- All guile (1 Peter 2:1)
- All hypocrisies ((1 Peter 2:1)
- All envies (1 Peter 2:1)
- All evil speaking (1 Peter 2:1)
If we follow God’s laws in our daily life, we will be happier, too.
