Psalm 15

The Lord has been challenging me the past couple of days with Psalm 15

Psalm 15 (New International Version)
A psalm of David.

1 LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
2 He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart

3 and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellowman,

4 who despises a vile man
but honors those who fear the LORD,
who keeps his oath
even when it hurts,

5 who lends his money without usury
and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things
will never be shaken

Think of those things that help us dwell in the sanctuary of the Lord, blameless walk, doing what is righteous, speaking the truth (from the heart), not slandering or slurring your fellowman, despising the vile, honoring those that fear the Lord, keeping an oath (even when it hurts) ....and so on.. that list can seem so overwhelming! Makes me thankful I have Jesus to help me do it!
