Read Psalm 15


Read Psalm 15

Lord, who may enter your Temple?
Who may worship on Zion, your sacred hill?v
2Those who obey God in everything
and always do what is right,
whose words are true and sincere,
3and who do not slander others.
They do no wrong to their friends
nor spread rumours about their neighbours.
4They despise those whom God rejects,
but honour those who obey the Lord.
They always do what they promise,
no matter how much it may cost.
5They make loans without charging interest
and cannot be bribed to testify against the innocent.
Whoever does these things will always be secure.


Who may enter your temple?
The answer the Psalmist offers describes people of integrity.  People who do the right thing, who speak truth, who do no wrong.
These are simple traits - traits that we often lack.


Lord - with your help I can be a person of integrity.  Heal my heart of the brokenness and sin that leads me to doing what is wrong, to speaking falsely, to slandering others.
Let me only pay attention to your opinion of me.
