Changing Your Life with Psalms
page The Righteous Person
Psalm 15 provides a perfect description of the upright person who may “dwell on God’s holy mountain.” It is not the person who acquires a huge amount of wealth, but the individual who is concerned with helping others and being a moral, honest person. The righteous man avers: “I prefer the teachings of Your mouth, than thousands of gold and silver pieces” (Psalm 119:72). The righteous person declares: “One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the pleasantness of the Lord and to meditate in His temple” (Psalm 27: 4-5).
The righteous person understands: “For a day in Your courtyards is better than a thousand days elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of My God than dwell in the tents of wickedness” (Psalm 84:10). As far as the “greed is good” philosophy, the psalmists asked God to “Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward covetousness” (Psalm 119:36). Greed transforms righteous people from the upright, moral life to a life of depravity.
