He guides me in path’s of righteousness for His name’s sake.” Psalm 23: 3
No you did not miss a post. No I am not confused about the order of Psalm 23. I know that the next post should be about greener pastures. But we have to start at the beginning and I can honestly say that with Christianity “greener patures” are not the beginning. Before we ever get to the green space we have to be led in righteousness.
Now righteousness is a sticking place for most of us, because it’s not something we produce naturally as humans. Goodness is not a part of who we are. It goes against our fallen grain. Still, righteousness is a prerequisite for entrance into Heaven. God understands that if we are to get to the good place it is up to Him. The truth is He has staked His reputation on saving us and bringing us to righteousness. That’s comforting to me because I know He will not let His name be brought down. While there are areas of goodness I still struggle with this struggle is not forever because for the sake of His name He is going to lead me into righteousness!
So tell me what’s the best way to become more righteous?
