Unto Others

Psalm 15:1-5 NIV

Lord , who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain? The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart; whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others; who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the Lord ;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind; who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.

I am struck as I meditate on this passage by how the way I treat and act towards others is what reveals my relationship with God. If I love God it will be seen in my love of others. As John reminds us in his 1st letter, if I don't love others than I lie about my love for God. It is impossible to love God and hate our neighbor. Love today. In Christ's love and mine, Doug
