I am often reminded of the boy scout who asked another pack member, “Do you ever have days when you feel just a little untrustworthy, disloyal, unhelpful, unfriendly, discourteous, unkind, grumpy, wasteful, cowardly, dirty, and irreverent?”
As a Christian, I know there are days that I don’t feel good, kind, righteous, joyful, giving, or loving. So what do you do as a believer when you do not feel very godly?
The answer is, “Keep doing the right thing anyway.”
Allow your actions to flow from your faith and not your feelings.
Whenever you don’t feel like being kind, do it anyway. Whenever you don’t feel like giving, give anyway. Whenever you don’t feel like being a godly Christian person, stand up and do it anyway. Everyone has days when they do not feel like being the person God is calling them to be. A sure sign of Christian maturity is when you do it anyway. Soon your feelings will change, and you will be much happier knowing you did the right thing from the beginning.
