This is so inspirational
I love how Ps 101 is a personal declaration of clinging to integrity & wisdom and staying far from evil and deceit, just what we’re studying in Proverbs! So timely!
-Starts with praise & worship, acknowledging God’s faithfulness and justice
-Vowing to pay attention to the way & live with a heart of integrity, looking for & actively awaiting its effect in your life
-Not setting things before myself that would give me an opportunity to partake in sin or evil
-Keeping those who are devious and evil far away
-Not allowing intruders in my mind or home which tend toward gossip, slander, arrogance, or pride/haughtiness, lying, or deceitful actions (that gets rid of a lot!)
-Arranging my schedule so that it is weighted toward those who are faithful, loyal, and full of integrity
-Daily re-evaluating who my ‘counselors’ are, and eliminating their influence in my life if they are found to be ungodly
These are challenging tasks for sure. But it all starts with the first point–focusing on God’s faithful love and justice. He will uphold us when we seek to follow Him. He is faithful–may we see His hand at work as we put aside the evil influences in our lives.
Love how you broke psalm 101 down! So good! Especially in light of all the awfulness and hate out there, we have control over what influences us and how we choose to walk our walk!
