Read Psalm 15
15:1 O LORD, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy hill?
15:2 Those who walk blamelessly, and do what is right, and speak the truth from their heart;
15:3 who do not slander with their tongue, and do no evil to their friends, nor take up a reproach against their neighbors;
15:4 in whose eyes the wicked are despised, but who honor those who fear the LORD; who stand by their oath even to their hurt;
15:5 who do not lend money at interest, and do not take a bribe against the innocent. Those who do these things shall never be moved.
These questions might be asked to people coming to the temple to worship. For us today it about a sense of the presence of God. Are you aware of God's presence?
The Psalm suggests that our location doesn't bring us to God's presence - but rather - our attitude.
A love of truth and justice. A healthy respect for those who fear the Lord. Integrity and generosity of character.
Do you choose to live in God's presence?
Lord I choose to live in your presence with truth, integrity, honour, generosity, justice and integrity today.
