Read Psalm 15 today.
Who does the psalmist say dwells on the Lord’s holy hill?
How does the psalmist speak of treating others justly?
Those aligned with the heart of God, act with the heart of God and dwell with him.
As you reflect on this, pray in these ways and any other way the Holy Spirit leads.
That we would be challenged and encouraged to be people after God’s own heart.
For our eyes and hearts to continue to be open to God’s truth and love.
To be aware of ways to promote the well-being of others.
To do all good things, not for ourselves, but for God’s glory.
That we would walk with honesty, truth, and goodness, and honor others as made in the image of God.
Living in the Shining Place
A poetic song by David
A Question Posed
1 Yahweh, who dares to dwell with you?
Who presumes the privilege of being close to you,
living next to you in your shining place of glory?
The Answer Provided
2 They are passionate and wholehearted,
always sincere and always speaking the truth--
for their hearts are trustworthy.
3 They refuse to slander or insult others;
they’ll never listen to gossip or rumors,
nor would they ever harm a friend with their words.
4 They will despise evil and evil workers
while commending the faithful ones who follow after the truth.
They make firm commitments and follow through,
even at great cost.
5 They never crush others with exploitation
and they would never be bought with a bribe
against the innocent.
Those who do these things will never be shaken;
they will stand firm forever.
