Scripture has many explanations of what righteous behaviour is,take for example Phil 4:8 - FOR THE REST, BROTHERS, WHATEVER IS TRUE, WHATEVER IS NOBLE, WHATEVER IS RIGHTEOUS, WHATEVER IS CLEAN, WHATEVER IS LOVELY, WHATEVER IS OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE IS ANY UPRIGHTNESS AND IF THERE IS ANY PRAISE - THINK OF THESE.
Obviously this behaviour is not attractive to the world and there are so many who will never know the peace from Yahusha that passes all understanding. Righteous living and the many exciting choices we have of defeating the hostility and chaos from our enemy, is a thrilling way to live.
If you are working for an employer who has asked that you work a certain way and you feel you can do what was asked of you in a better way, so you decide to take it upon yourself to do it your way. Suddenly the whole manufacturing plant is shut down, this happened because you didn't follow the instructions and your work was not measured to the specific instructions, causing the shut-down. The employer graciously explains He has grown his business from his garage, he and his team have worked out all other avenues of production. He tells you again that everything must be done according to the specific instructions, for productivity and job satisfaction to work for everyone down the line.
Big lesson to learn!! This behaviour of course is not righteous and causes chaos and danger, many believers use the Turah in such a fashion, adding confusion, because they want things their own way. RIGHTEOUS BEHAVIOUR IS WALKING THE PATH THE MASTER SETS FOR US.
Many haven't a clue that our daily routines and disciplines are a course in time management leading to prosperity in all different levels.
Satan and his fallen angels are constantly coming at us to disrupt our disciplines, hoping their suggestions will pull us off the path.
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR DAILY ROUTINES ARE RIGHTEOUSNESS & RIGHTEOUS BEHAVIOUR.
This is where we can enjoy the battle so much, understanding the righteous fight and having victory over the enemy, because we will not obey their wicked suggestions.
It is essential to tell your kids about Satan and his fallen angles otherwise you will have chaos in your homes - children must be taught righteous behaviour and family disciplines and routines, if you do not do this it is a shame to you and your life will be unpleasant.
