Devotion 12-11-23 Psalms 101:2 - "I will give heed to the blameless way. When will You come to me? I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart." This psalm is attributed to David. David knew about God's lovingkindness and justice. He had personally experienced it. David had been a godly leader; then he got off track. When confronted with his sin, he repented and lived with the consequences. Here he says, "I will sing of lovingkindness and justice to You, O LORD, I will sing praises."(verse 1) After his repentance, David gave, "heed to the blameless way." He says, in verse 3, there will be no worthless thing before his eyes. He will distance himself from anyone with a perverse or evil heart.(verse 4) He promises to destroy those who slander others. He will destroy those who are arrogant and think of themselves as better than others. Those people will not be endured.(verse 5) David will only look at those who are faithful and blameless.(verse 6) He will not associate with those who are deceitful or who speak lies.(verse 7) David's intention is to destroy all the wicked of the land. (verse 8) so that the land will not be polluted with iniquity. Do a self evaluation. Is your relationship with God in Jesus Christ clear and uncluttered by sin? Are you aware of the evil that swirls around you and and are you doing your part to eliminate it from society? Do you tolerate those who lie, arrogantly stepping on others? Or, do you call them out? "He who walks in a blameless way is the one who will minister to me."(verse 6b) The blameless way is the way of integrity. Do not allow evil in any form to represent you, speak for you, or minister to you. You decide; you chose; you change the society to honor God rather than sin.
