In days past, we looked at “what is love?”, “what is truth?” now let’s look at “what is right?” So, “right” can be defined as morally good, justified or acceptable. The word employed in our text conveys the thought of doing what is right in my own eyes, i.e., what pleases me, what I approve rather than what God approves or what pleases Him. In other words, “right” became relative rather than absolute, subjective to how one may feel about a certain situation rather than objective. The line of demarcation between right and wrong has been blurred by moral relativism. Today, as in the days of the Judges of Israel, nearly everyone advocates this “to each their own” philosophy. The standard for what “right” is, is found in God’s unchanging, forever relevant, forever settled Word, the Bible. As the moral fabric of our society continues to decay, we can be sure of this, the Word of God will never change!
