A checklist is a list of things to be done and conduct is the way a person behaves. For us to behave properly in our relationships we will need a checklist to ensure we are doing the right thing.
It could be our relationship with the spouse, children, colleagues at work or with even our enemies.
Hezekiah was one of the good kings of Israel because he did that which was right in the sight of God.
2 Chronicles 31:20
“And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the Lord his God.”
The checklist of right conduct is three questions. Is it good, is it right, is it according to the word or truth? Hezekiah did that “which was good, right and truth. Let’s examine the interrelationships a little bit more closely.
Sometimes, something may be right but it’s not good. For example, someone can help you to succeed and you may pay him or her a salary that is according to the person’s contract. It’s right but it may not be good compared to the input of the person.
Something can be good but not according to truth or scriptures. An example is sex outside marriage, it may look good but it’s not consistent with truth or the scriptures.
Let’s do things using the checklist of good conduct.
