Who may abide with the Lord?
What a short Psalm 15 is – but for such a small size, it packs a punch!
David asks who can abide with God and then offers twelve answers! We see how he encourages us to have integrity, show justice, be reliable, keep from speaking cruelly, refrain from harming others, and to be respectful. He also reminds us not to be fickle, greedy or take a bribe.
Maybe you’ll want to take a couple of minutes to read through Psalm 15 and look into your heart like I did. I asked the Lord where I might improve under the direction of the Holy Spirit.
The Psalm ends with a beautiful promise that if we live our lives with integrity and love, we will not be shaken.

O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;
3 who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
5 who does not put out his money at interest
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.
