Purposing to Live Rightly in a Sin-Impacted World

 
How then shall we live in a world full of evil and chaos?

Trustworthy or Not?

 
Rules mean something, and when expectations have been clearly stated, I need to be considerate of those who have the authority to impose them and follow them when possible, and if I cannot, I need to be mindful of the consequences for those impacted and for myself. When I kept those lessons in mind and made good choices, I got in less trouble and experienced a wonderful freedom rather than consequences.
