A Psalm of David. O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart;
who does not slander with his tongue and does no evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
in whose eyes a vile person is despised, but who honors those who fear the LORD; who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
who does not put out his money at interest and does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.
There we have it; a list of characteristics seen in those who love and serve God. Can we stop seeing characteristics as a list of do’s and don’ts? It isn’t what one must do; it is simply what they do! From the inside out we express our love for God and fellow-man through who we are, who we have become in Him. We walk blamelessly for we are covered by the blood of Jesus; we do what is right because we love…God and our fellow-man. We do not slander; we do no evil toward another for that would not be acting in love. We do not cause reproach against friends; we show honor to those who fear the Lord. We do not cheat another but deal honestly with others; we do not harm the innocent. We are those who will stand and not be moved.
