I am intimidated by the word “righteous”. I immediately envision a bishop or a cardinal in their robes looking right through me. To be righteous seems way out of my reach, since I know everything I have recently been up to. A friendly way that I have learned to accept this word is to think of being righteous as being someone who strives to live in a “right way” according to God’s direction.
This psalm has a list of things to work on to improve your righteousness. I included four in my meme – the ones I can work on every day. I am surprised at how often I hear gossip – it seems to always comes with the desire to pass it on. Sometimes, unfortunately, I do pass it on. But sometimes I have victory over myself and am able to let it end with me. I want to stand firm with God and am forever thankful to Jesus for helping me achieve forgiveness.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 16
