My Psalm Insight For Today

(With my additions from my Bible's notes...)

Psalm 24.3-6
Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place?

He who has clean hands (guiltless actions)
and a pure heart (right attitudes and motives),
Who has not lifted up his soul to (worshipped or trusted in ) an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully (including perjury - the willful giving of false testimony).

He shall receive blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This [is] Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face.


How could ANY of us live up to these four simple requirements for an entire lifetime?

NO ONE - no, NOT ONE- deserve to go to heaven...but by the grace of the Lord!

"There but by the grace of God go I." - John Bradford

Try THAT on for size the next time you find yourself judging another person!

Do you know that one of my constant battles is to not judge others. How quickly my mind will make a snap judgement and I will have to take that thought captive and rebuke it! Thank you for posting this. ((Hugs))
