In today's reading of Psalm 15, we find a list of attributes (a code of conduct) that if followed will cause great stability. The Bible says if you do these things you will not be moved...you will be unshakable!
In today's culture, (and sometimes in today's church), we find compromise. We trade a truth for a lie. Things like "no one will know", "one time won't hurt" to accepting "little white lies" as being acceptable are all compromises that can crumble your spirit.
(PSALM 15) "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."
Rising to live by this code of conduct will NOT keep you from struggles or heartbreak, however, when you dwell with God, the struggles of this world will seem insignificant when compared to the awe and splendor of Him.
Anyone who is anchored to a immovable rock will be hard to shake. Attach yourself to the Rock (Jesus Christ) and you will NOT be moved.
