Where Do You Want To Dwell?

“Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?”

Do we not all want to abide in God’s tabernacle, to dwell in His holy hill. Would it not be wonderful to always live with the Lord? Are you one who could? Do you meet these requirements?

“He who walks blamelessly” 

To walk blamelessly is to walk like Christ walked, to walk in the Law of the Lord.

“and does what is right” 

Do you make an effort to always do what is right in God’s eyes?

“and speaks the truth in his heart;”

Even to yourself you must speak truth. Satan tries to lie to us often. We must not believe or repeat those lies, but speak the truth about all things, to ourselves and to others.

“who does not slander with his tongue” 

Do your words reflect well on others or do they tear them down and damage their reputation? We should be know for speaking the positive and the good.

“and does no evil to his neighbor,”

Christ would have us love our neighbors as ourselves. We should be looking out for their good. Who is your neighbor? Check out Luke 10:27-37. 

“nor takes up a reproach against his friend;”

Have peace with all people. Do  not take up anything against a friend. Work it out. 

“in whose eyes a vile person is despised,”

Sin should never be approved. Despise what is wrong. 

“but who honors those who fear the Lord;”

Those who fear God deserve honor. Be a person who deserves honor and give honor to those who live for God. 

“who swears to his own hurt and does not change;”

Keep your word, even when it is not convenient. What you have said do, even if the cost are high.  

“who does not put out his money at interest” 

Give and loan without expecting more back, or even anything back.

“and does not take a bribe against the innocent.”

Do not hurt the innocent even if it seems best for you. Be innocent before God. 

“He who does these things shall never be moved.”

Psalm 15 (KJV & ESV)
