In Psalm 15, David asks God a question – how do we get on your guest list?   How do we get invited to a banquet at your place?

God’s advice is very clear cut and very applicable to our lives as well:

  • Walk straight – and no God’s not talking about sobriety tests or any other thing – when He says, “Walk straight” then He is talking about living the kind of life that the Bible calls for.
  • Tell the truth.   Enough said.
  • Don’t hurt your friend.    Hard to do but important.
  • Don’t blame your neighbor – more on that later – but it seems like there is a lot of that going on in America today.
  • Despise the despicable – if it’s despicable, stay away from it.
  • Keep your word, even when it costs you.   Ouch, that’s harder to do than it is to say.
  • Make an honest living.  
  • Never take a bribe.

Now I ask you, how many of the struggles that we currently face in America are because people aren’t following these guidelines?

Hmmmm…….
