The Light Daily Devotional – The blessedness of Righteousness
Focus: The blessedness of Righteousness
The word for today
No man can become what God wants him to be through unrighteousness. The only way to have the life God wants to give you is to walk in obedience to God and righteousness!
“Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverb 14:34 NKJV
When an individual or nation practices righteousness and lives according to God’s word that is when such will experience exaltation. Sin is a reproach to any people: when a nation engages in sin and unrighteous behavior, it brings shame and disgrace to the people. Reproach is the reward for every sinful.
Walking in unrighteousness leads one away from the path of what God desires for them. True fulfillment and purpose can only be achieved by embracing and following the principles of righteousness set forth by God. Living a life guided by obedience to God and His teachings brings clarity, direction, and a deeper understanding of the unique and magnificent plan He has for each of us. Only then can we fully embrace and experience the richness and fullness of life that God has in store.
In essence, righteousness acts as the cornerstone of our journey, elevating us to new heights and guiding us toward a life of purpose and significance. Therefore, we must be mindful of the significant impact that our actions can have on our communities and nations, and encourage us to strive for righteousness and live according to God’s standards.
Is righteousness your lifestyle?
Prayer: Lord! Help to be righteous in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You will only be who God wants you to be by righteousness alone!
Have a Graceful Tuesday!
