I sometimes say it’s rightness. It’s aligning yourself with what is right. But you on your own won’t know what is right, because right doesn’t depend on good, it depends on God and His will. We can do something that may seem bad but it’s right because it’s God’s will. For example, Elisha told Naaman to “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.” (2 Kings 5:10) This didn’t seem good, but it was right.
