How much time and effort do you spend trying to be right? Right look, right clothes, right hair or no hair, right curb appeal on your house. Righteous means doing what is right with a right heart. Everything that is right in our lives starts with the Lord.
The people will declare,
“The Lord is the source of all my righteousness and strength…”
Isaiah 45:24 NLT
I don’t have to spend my time trying to be right for the Lord, but just go to him and ask him to be my source of rightness. He is not asking us to become Amish or revert to a horse and buggy. Righteousness is not about outward but inward.
Today, Lord, create in me a clean heart.
