When the Majority Is Not Right

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

The majority is not always right. Take Israel, for example. If the majority had ruled, they would never have left Egypt. That’s right, if a vote had been taken, they would have stayed in bondage. David is another example. If the majority had ruled, he would never have fought Goliath. By vote, David would have been sent back to tend his father’s flock. 

You may be asking, OK Rick, what’s your point; so what? The point is, we must take to heart what is written in the Bible — listen to what God says, not what the majority says. 

Sometimes Christ followers question if things will turn out right when they do what is right. Or they’ve tried to do something right and nothing goes as planned. Don’t worry about the outcome, do what is right. The prophet Micah told the people of Israel, “The LORD has told you what is good, and this is what He requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God [Micah 6:8 - bold emphasis added].

Do what is right. It really doesn’t matter what the majority says. When you do what it right, God knows.

May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ. 2 Thessalonians 3:5
