Today's reading: Psalm 101:1-8
Psalm 101 gives us a look at a conversation between David and God where David tells God that he is committed to living for Him. But David doesn't simply say, "I'm going to follow you," and leave it at that. Instead, he lays out for God some specific ways in which he will live rightly and with integrity. We see from David a commitment to:
- Sing and make music that praises and honors God.
- Intentionally contemplate and reflect on living rightly.
- Guard what he looks at.
- Focus his thoughts on God and honor His ways.
- Associate with and learn from upright and good people.
How often do your prayers include telling God specific ways in which you are committed to following Him? Take a few minutes to think about the things you do to ensure you are living rightly, and then talk with God about them today. Tami
