The Making of A Godly Man

A few days ago, while reading through some Psalms, I was gripped by David's descriptive language of a Godly person in Psalm 15. The clarity and profundity stood out like a diamond on black velvet. For those who wish to walk in a manner worthy of their calling, only complete surrender to David's words will do.

I share with you, Psalm 15,...

1O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent?
   Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
 2He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
   and speaks truth in his heart;
3 who does not slander with his tongue
   and does no evil to his neighbor,
   nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
   but who honors those who fear the LORD;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;5who does not put out his money at interest
   and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.

The word of the LORD...
