Psalm 15 from The Message:

God, who gets invited to dinner at your place?
How do we get on your guest list?

“Walk straight,
act right,
tell the truth.

“Don’t hurt your friend,
don’t blame your neighbor;
despise the despicable.

“Keep your word even when it costs you,
make an honest living,
never take a bribe.

“You’ll never get
if you live like this.” (Psalm 15, The Message)

I love this passage because it provides a pretty clear and simple explanation for how to please God.

Walk straight, act right, tell the truth. Don’t hurt, don’t blame, despise wrong-doing. Keep your word.

Although these things are easier to say than to do on a daily basis, if we keep them in our minds and on our hearts, and just take a moment to meditate on them now and then, they will become the foundation for how we go about our lives.

Take a moment to ask God for help with this. He is the only One who can provide you with strength and discipline to walk in holiness and love.
