Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
    Who may live on your holy mountain?
The one whose walk is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
    who does no wrong to a neighbor,
    and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
    but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
    and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
    who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
    will never be shaken.

Psalm 15

How does a person who follows Jesus speak truth from the heart? Indeed Jesus is the truth; we must continually shine out his example and the teachings that he and his apostles have given to us. The only way that is truly possible is to ensure that his words are kept in our hearts so that they guide us.


Holy God, just lawgiver and gracious protector, give us your truth in our heart and your righteousness along our path. Help us to dwell with you forever. Amen
