Do the Right Thing
Luke 23:50-55 Now there was a man named Joseph, from the Jewish town of Arimathea. He was a member of the council, a good and righteous man...
Doing what you know is right can be tough. And we get a glimpse of that with Joseph of Arimathea. Joseph was a member of the Jewish council, but he didn't agree with them or join in the crusade to have Jesus killed. (Luke 23:50-51 says that Joseph was a "good and righteous man, who had not consented to their decision and action.") But Joseph doesn't leave things there. He does what he knows is right--going to Pilate, asking for Jesus' body and then providing a tomb for Jesus.
When have you been a "Joseph" and done what you know is the right thing in spite of others doing the opposite? How did that make you feel? And how did it help you going forward? Tami
