Lord, Who Lives With You?

Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle?  who shall dwell in thy holy hill?  He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.  He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor, not taketh u a reproach against his neighbour.  In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord.  He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.  He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent.  He that doeth these things shall never be moved.  (Psalm 15:1-5)

Interesting question and a remarkable answer.  David asked the Lord a question about the type of person who would live in His tent on His property.  The answer is a little surprising because while it originally uses terms like “walking upright”, “working righteous deeds” and “being honest in the heart” it soon turns to how we treat others.  Look at verses 3 to 5 and see that God has expectations on how we should treat others.  These expectations deal with attitudes, actions, words, who we respect, and how we use the money that God blesses us with.  Do we reflect the culture in which we live in these areas or do we reflect God?  The person who show God’s reflection is the person living with Him.  Where are you living today?
