Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is. Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts.
Thoughts on today's verse
A whole bunch of folks claim that God is on their side. In reality, that's not important at all. The real question is whether we are on God's side! That's determined more by what we seek and do rather than what we say and believe. God longs to be with us, but he will not sacrifice his character to extend us cheap grace, a grace that does not call us to be like him. He's looking for believers who put their character where their mouth is.
Most Holy God. Your righteousness and holiness are beyond me and my ability to attain. Yet I long, dear Father, to be more like you in every way humanly possible. Let me know of your presence with me as I seek you and your character in my life. Through Jesus the Righteous One I pray. Amen.
