Topic: Psalm 15
"Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill?
"He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous,
"who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue,
"who does his neighbor no wrong and cast no slur on his fellowman,
"who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the Lord,
"who keeps his oath even when it hurts,
"who lends his money without interest and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
"He who does these things will never be shaken."
** Prayer to put this into action in my life.
~ Father God, thank You that you so clearly spell out what an authentic Christian looks like. I want to live in Your presence. I want to feel Your nearness as I journey through my days. Please help me to walk in the power of Your Holy Spirit. That is the only way I can even attempt to walk blamelessly and righteously.
Help me today to speak truthfully in all things and to keep my mouth free from words that do not build up others. Help me to refrain from comments that cast a negative light on another.
~Father, help me to honor other believers even when I don't particularly agree with them or even like them. Help me to honor them because they are Your children too.
May I be a person of my word and generous in all my ways. May my feet be planted solidly on You today, my Rock and my Shield. "May my life be my worship" today.
In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
Which statement in this prayer could most apply to you? Have you thought about what it means to "cast no slur on your fellow man but honor those who love the Lord"?
