Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice. Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. Psalm 112:5-6
A righteous person is highly thought of and will be remembered long after he or she departs this earth. One known for giving, sharing, honesty, integrity, good morale character and one who is sold out to God. Do you feel this description fits you or needs some tweaking perhaps?
Each day you have choices to make. Choices to do right or wrong. Choices to be kind or mean. Choices to share or be stingy. Choices to love unconditionally or judge. Where do you fit in? Just asking so you will ponder this for a while.
Righteous people are not self righteous, where that be would proving to everyone how good you are, but instead are right standing with God. He is first. They strive to be like Him and are not ashamed to identify with Him. Today start living the kind of life where others can see Jesus in you. Don’t be ashamed of Him. Don’t deny Him. Someday then you will hear “well done my good and faithful servant!”.
PRAYER: Oh Lord you are beautiful. Your face is all I seek. Forgive me when I put the Today Show before my time alone with you. Draw me to your side and never let me go. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
