On today's Footsteps, former TWR Vice President Alan Travers makes reference to "the Divine Ought."  I had never heard anyone use that term before, but I love it!  When we know that God is leading us in a certain direction, when we have a mandate from Scripture, or when we know that something is right, that's the Divine Ought.  The great American frontiersman and politician Davy Crockett held to a very similar rule for his life.  Instead of calling it the Divine Ought, Davy Crockett's life motto was "Be always sure you're right--THEN GO AHEAD!"(1)  That's a good way to live.
