When David asks God who can reside in His house, He answers him:
2 The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the LORD;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
If we are going to think about our goals, and think about should I or should I not make this major life change, or this major life change, isn’t this a great place to start? Our minister mentioned this Psalm (Psalm 15) in church yesterday and it has stuck with me. I am going to try to read this each morning and each night this week and thank God for my life.
The sermon yesterday was about being creative in our gratitude to God. Maybe we can step away from repeating the same prayer every morning and night, thanking Him for our blessings in a memorized, monotonous tone, and instead, really show him how thankful we are by giving back to Him. We can show God our gratitude by being His disciples, and we can be His disciples by doing the things he says are good. We can try to always do the righteous thing, to tell the truth, to not gossip, to not hate, to keep our promises, and to give to those less fortunate than ourselves. Just a thought for a rainy Monday.
Have a great day!
