1 Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? 2 He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart; 5 He who does these things shall never be moved.
Now we look into the realm of attitude and integrity in our hearts before God. More than an occasional thought to speak and act right, God wants us to have a heart that is dedicated to living these as a life-style. This should be a normal part of the “new life” that becomes who we are as “new creations in Christ”.
God brings up “The Money Factor” in right behavior toward others. We should use money to help, not to take advantage of others, and never allow money to cause you to make wrong choices about people. God points out that staying strong against this “temptation” will keep us strong in our relationships with God.
Let's end where we started. God is clear: Be careful with your words and actions concerning yourself and others, and you will keep yourself close to God. If you're looking for a “New Years' Resolution” (call it anything you like) ...Just make a choice to guard your words and actions, and watch this produce good results in your relationship with God and others. Let's Do This ! ....And God Bless You in the New Year !
