As we grow as a community and challenge one another to focus on God, I want to ask a question to you all… What does the word righteous mean? We hear often that God is righteous but do you know what that means? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, it defines ‘righteous’ as ‘acting in accord with divine or moral law: free from guilt or sin’. Psalm 119:137-144 has this to say…
You are righteous, Lord,
and your laws are right.
The statutes you have laid down are righteous;
they are fully trustworthy.
My zeal wears me out,
for my enemies ignore your words.
Your promises have been thoroughly tested,
and your servant loves them.
Though I am lowly and despised,
I do not forget your precepts.
Your righteousness is everlasting
and your law is true.
Trouble and distress have come upon me,
but your commands give me delight.
Your statutes are always righteous;
give me understanding that I may live.
From this, we understand that God’s righteous ways are eternal and good. Here we read the importance to turn to His righteous ways. It gives us understanding and it is always right. Throughout this week, take time to revere the Word of God and delight in the truth He has for you. Encourage one another this way youth.
