Do The Right Thing

One of the hardest things to do in life is to do the right thing. At times we don’t know what the right thing even is. But I am reminded of two verses in the Bible:

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. ~ James 4:17

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. ~ Galatians 6:9

I have collated the below quotes received from my friends and other sources. I hope you will find them motivational, and strive to do the right thing. Trust me, it is always for your best.
