Do Right by Others | Zechariah 7:9-10

Read This Passage: Zech. 7:8-14

9 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Execute true justice, show mercy and compassion everyone to his brother. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart against his brother.’

Zechariah 7:9-10 NKJV

We are always looking for ways to improve ourselves and to make ourselves happy in our soul, right? So, how do you go about trying to improve yourself and make yourself happy in your soul? For self-improvement and happiness many of us will go the route of trying to drop all negativity and find something that makes us happy. So, to do this we may try to pick up a new hobby while dropping those things that aren’t healthy for us; for example we will drop terrible addictions or poor eating habits for trying exercise regularly.

There’s certainly nothing wrong with doing these things especially if they help you spiritually. If you want to continue to improve yourself and be happy in yourself, just listen to the Lord’s advice. The Lord advised the people of Israel to execute justice, show mercy, compassion, and not to plan evil in order to improve themselves. Guess what? The Lord’s advice for improvement to Israel is great advice for us as well.

You want to feel better about yourself and be happy in your soul? Do right by others! Love your neighbor as you love yourself! Show mercy! Be compassionate! Help those who you are able to help! Don’t plan evil or be malicious in your heart. We must understand that wickedness is poison to the soul! However, love, on the other hand, is life for the soul. So, you want to improve yourself and be happy in your soul? Do right by others!
