Psalms — Psalm 15 – What a List!

Day 2557: God’s creation is awesome – open your eyes and soak it in!!!

Scripture: Lord, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? 

He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, and speaks truth in his heart. He does not slander with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend; in whose eyes a reprobate is despised, but who honors those who fear the Lord; he swears to his own hurt and does not change; he does not put out his money at interest, nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. 

He who does these things will never be shaken. Psalm 15

Thoughts/questions: Qualifications for any job can be extreme, but this list of characteristics to dwell in God’s holy hill – Wow – worth reading again!

Two thoughts: 1) As stated often in God2me, we can’t impress God with our goodness. We sin; He saves; end of story!

2) One aspect of the list – He swears to his own hurt and does not change. Does this reflect your life style and choices? Or do you commit to one thing, then something else comes up that’s better, then you ‘change.’ Or do you have the integrity that says, ‘even though this other thing is better and my first choice may even be to my own detriment, I stick with that first commitment?’

Be a person of your word! Someone others and God can count on. Let you yes be yes and your no be no! Even if what you’ve committed to hurts a bit.

Scripture: Lord God, help me to always think before I commit and then be someone whose word can be counted on . . .
