Taking Inventory ~ Part Two

Psalm 15 is a barometer Psalm for me. David started out with two questions in verse 1. It says, “Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?”

The answers are in verses 2-5. Let me recap: one who walks uprightly, works righteousness, speaks truth in his heart. Does not backbite, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend. Despises a vile person, honors those who fear the Lord, fulfills the promises that he makes. Does not charge interest to someone he knows, and does not take any bribes.

Verse 5 ends with, “…He who does these things shall not be moved.” I think of a barnacle that clings to a surface. Nothing can move it. Tempestuous storms do not phase it.

The Lord will shake the activities and relationships in our lives that detract from our testimony. We are called to a holy calling. Translation? Our lives would exemplify Him in every aspect. I encourage you to take inventory and measure your heart with God’s word ~
