Daily Encouragement: Day 161

From Handbook to Wisdom, Day 161

FOLLOW THE PATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS

Who may ascend the hill of the Lord?
Who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who has not lifted up his soul to an idol
or sworn by what is false.
(Psalm 24:3–4)

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
shining ever brighter until the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like darkness;
they do not know what makes them stumble.
(Proverbs 4:18–19)

Dear God, I ask that I will walk in the path of the righteous in the light of Your guidance and truth. I seek to ascend the hill of Your presence and commune with You in the holy places of Christ-like character and goodness. Give me the grace of holy desire to be more and more like Jesus. Amen.
