"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 casts 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 usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken." - Psalm 15
- Read this passage three times over. What hits you the hardest?
- Do you think that the psalmist is saying that the only people who can dwell with God are those who keep all these commands? Is there any room for error? What in Scripture backs up your answer?
"God, I long to dwell in your sanctuary. I desire to live on your holy hill. Guide me into living a blameless life that follows your commands without question."
Which of these commands does your life most reflect, and which does it least reflect? Pray for God to increase your devotion in following both of those commands. How specifically can you follow them more closely?
