17 Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
This part really stuck in my head "What you ought to say is, 'If the Lords wants us to, we will live and do this or that.'" I thought, "How many things would I choose not to do if I start my plans with 'If the Lords wants me to I will _____." This would make us really aware of our plans and if they will please God. It would make us more acute listeners of the Holy Spirit, I think. We would be more likely to hear the Holy Spirit say "You should not do that!" or "You need to do this." It would make me more aware of needing to ask God what He wants me to do that day. I need this phrase to drop down into my spirit for sure!!
