This passage from Psalm 111 is my choice for the verse(s) of the week for several reasons. 💛 Here are a few good ones, in my book:
▫️The overwhelming goodness of God’s character (and His justice) is the focus of the passage, and the emphasis is on the fact that everything the Lord does is characterized by these attributes;
▫️There is a reminder that God Himself is fully trustworthy, therefore anything He directs us to do is always right;
▫️His commands are always true – there’s never any deception with the Lord! – and as a consequence, He expects us to respond to His edicts with consistent and whole-hearted obedience.
Put another way, God is
Therefore, He asks us to be
▫️People of integrity
A pretty reasonable exchange, don’t you think? 🔑
