"I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O Lord, I will sing praise. I will be careful to lead a blameless life- when will you come to me? I will walk in my house with blameless heart. I will set before my eyes no vile thing." Psalm 101:1-3
The psalmist promises the Lord that he will seek to live a blameless life. I invite us today to consider what such a promise would look like in our daily lives. How do we align our thoughts, words and deeds to the Lord's ways to such an extent that we would be "blameless" before God. Scripture teaches us that Jesus was the only blameless one to live a full human life. Jesus is our example for living with a heart of love and a mind for justice. We become blameless in our daily affairs as we model Jesus. One of the best ways we can correct our living is to read and re-read the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). Looking particularly at how Jesus acted and spoke in relation to others. Perhaps seeking a blameless life is to much to ask for all at once. Perhaps we could seek to be blameless today in our loving of others and seeking to do and say what's right before God. Whatever circumstance you find yourself in today- be blameless by emulating Jesus.
