Week 2– Psalm of Orientation
How Do We Live?
Introduction to Psalm 15
For Israel, the best way to celebrate God’s well-ordered creation is to live in light of God’s values, will, and purpose. Psalm 15 is an expression of how to respond to and honor God’s well-oriented world. Its main theme is expressed in the questions in verse 1 – How do we draw near to God? The rest of the Psalm answers the question.
Psalm 15 (ESV)
A Psalm of David.
1O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
2He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart;
3who does not slander with his tongue and does no evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4in 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;
5who 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.
Thank you for praying with us through these 40 days!
