A principle is an accepted or professed rule of action or conduct, which will secure a specific end result.
Many of us that have set out to do the right things in life have become angry and frustrated because it would appear as if those who are living wickedly appear to be prospering and advancing while those of us that are doing our best to abide by God's rules and principles would appear to be suffering or like some would say, we seem to be getting the short end of the stick!
I would like to encourage someone today by saying that in spite of how others seem to be joyfully living in spite of them violating the principles of God. The reality is those same principles are in place for our advantage and protection and those that are ignoring and breaking them are in fact securing a negative end result for themselves in the future.
I am certain that you can think of any number of people that cheated, lied, were dishonest in their dealings and in some way they're paying for it today. The scriptures assures us of this when it says, "There is a way unto man that "appears right" but at the end of man's way he is guaranteed destruction, Proverbs 16:25.
While doing what is right may seem to take a long time before it begin to pan out, it is those same principles that you have determine to follow that will eventually secure you a good end result. Now, you still have the option of enjoying the temporary pleasures of life through cheating, lying, and being corrupt in your dealings but know for a certainty that the payment for such behavior and actions are far greater that the temporary pleasures that it once brought to you.
Please! Continue doing the right thing, continue practicing the scriptural principles as it relates to your matter, even though you're being mocked, laughter at and made fun of. As a reminder, there were thousands that lived the way they wanted to live and at the same time violating the laws, rules and principles of God in the days of Noah and Lot with, Sodom and Gomorrah. However, there were only a few that were saved in both cases who decided to adhere to God's principles and thousands that were secured a destructive end because they made the decision to reject the principles and laws of God.
So, the reality is accepting or rejecting the principles of God will determine if your "END RESULT" will be destruction or promotion.
