The Word of God Reminds us that we are Called to be a Light in the Darkness

Proverbs 29:27 “THE RIGHTEOUS DETEST THE DISHONEST; THE WICKED DETEST THE UPRIGHT.”

The righteous detest dishonesty and deceit, while the wicked despise those who walk in integrity and uprightness.

As followers of Christ, we are called to walk in righteousness and uphold the values of honesty, integrity, and truth.

This world often celebrates deception and dishonesty, so choosing to live a life of integrity can be challenging.

We may face ridicule, rejection, or even persecution for standing firm in our commitment to truth and righteousness. However, the Word of God reminds us that we are called to be a light in the darkness, to be salt in a world that’s in desperate need of God’s truth and righteousness.

When we choose to walk in righteousness, we not only honour God but also reflect His character to the world around us. Our commitment to honesty and integrity serves as a testimony to the transforming power of God in our lives and draws others to seek Him. As we detest dishonesty and embrace truth, we become instruments of God’s justice and agents of His Kingdom here on earth.

Stand firm in your commitment to righteousness, even when it seems like an uphill battle. Remember, THE WICKED DETEST THE UPRIGHT, so it won’t be easy. Many will detest your commitment to God, truth, honesty, and walking in integrity.

Remember that your ultimate allegiance is to God, who calls you to walk in His ways and live according to His truth. May you be known as a person of integrity, whose words and actions reflect your commitment to God and His written Word. And may your life be a testimony to the power of God to transform hearts, renew minds, and bring about lasting change in a world that’s in desperate need of His truth and righteousness.

Have a great day walking uprightly by the grace of God. God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
