Just a few verses I have been thinking about recently.
A question is asked, and he also gives the answer to that question. I’ve highlighted the answer. This is how I want to choose to live. These verses challenge my intergity (vs 4B), my speech (2b, 3b), as well as my actions (2a, 3a). I cannot say that, of the 9 things I highlighted that I am perfect, or near perfect, at any of them. Blameless, righteous. Those are two hard things. Blameless-without blame. That means without blame for anything. Not even one thing. Righteous-morally right. I’m not always, or ever, blameless. I’m not morally right in general. I could go on and on point by point with all nine things, but I wont. Rather than lingering over all the sin I can see, I want to instead work on changing that. Staring at bread, peanut butter, and jelly will not make a sandwich. You have to do something about it. And that’s what I plan to do 🙂
Psalm 15: 1-4
1 LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
2 He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
3 and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellowman,
4 who despises a vile man
but honors those who fear the LORD,
who keeps his oath
even when it hurts,
