Read Psalm 15

Monday

Read Psalm 15

Lord, who may enter your Temple?
   Who may worship on Zion, your sacred hill?

2 Those who obey God in everything
   and always do what is right,
whose words are true and sincere,
3     and who do not slander others.
They do no wrong to their friends
   nor spread rumors about their neighbors.
4 They despise those whom God rejects,
   but honor those who obey the Lord.
They always do what they promise,
   no matter how much it may cost.
5 They make loans without charging interest
   and cannot be bribed to testify against the innocent.

Whoever does these things will always be secure.

Think

The answer to the question: "Who may enter your Temple?" is very simple; someone who does what is right.  Verses 2-5 paint a picture of a very normal good and kind person.  

Pray

Take away my ego and set me free to do what is right in your eyes.
