Psalm 15:1 (New International Version)
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
Psalm 15 asks – and answers – the question: “Who can reside with the LORD?” The answer converges on actions in four areas: rectitude, relationships, reputation and revenue.
• Rectitude – conduct oneself blamelessly, do what is right, speak the truth;
• Relationships – do not speak evil, do not do evil, do not hold grudges;
• Reputation – shame the shameful, honour the honorable;
• Revenue – earn every cent earned honestly, spend every cent generously.
Who can tick off all the items on this list? No one.
Except Jesus, and those in him.
