Dear Friends,
It is easy to get hurt by others. But we must always remember to do what’s right—forgive them. Jesus has forgiven us countless times and we must do the same: forgive those who offend us, every time. It is very hard but we have to learn to do it so our hearts stay clean from resentment. Today I want to share a devotional from my book Devotions for Working Women about doing the right thing—always.

To Be Happy We Need to Be Just and Do What’s Right
# 77
Psalm 106:3 (NLT)

Happy are those who deal justly with others and always do what is right.

God is just and fair. He is also no respecter of persons. If any person loves Him and accepts Jesus as Savior, that person will be saved no matter what color, race, or age he or she is, or what background he or she has. He also expects us to walk in love, and part of that is being just with others (all people). We cannot favor some people over others if we are to imitate Him.

Every person wants to be happy. Well, the Bible tells us right here how to be happy: be just with others and always do the right thing. Notice that it says always, not sometimes, and not to some people only. Doing what is right always is a lifestyle. It is a decision we make on a daily basis. We can only know what the right thing to do is all the time when we are in constant communication with God.

In the workplace, you will have daily opportunities to deal justly with others and always do what is right. If you are in management, be fair to all your employees. If you are in sales, be fair to all your customers—and always do what’s right.
