Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 776 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
I am Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
God Is Righteous – Wisdom Wednesday
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. Today is Day 776 of our trek, and it is Wisdom Wednesday. Due to heavy travel and an activity-filled schedule for the next three to four weeks, our Wisdom-Trek episodes will be shorter so that I can pre-record them.
As we start this new year, I thought it would be good to invest this time discovering God and His key attributes. Yesterday we explored that God Is Absolute Truth. Today’s attribute is…
God Is Righteous
Because God is righteous…I will live by His standards.“The Lord is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness,” Psalm 1[45:17].
We live in an age where the distinction between right and wrong is becoming increasingly blurred. Our culture has adopted the principle of situational ethics, which proposes that what is morally right varies from person to person and situation to situation. Yet God’s standards do not change; they are timeless.
God’s laws are a reflection of His own righteous nature. Only by receiving Jesus as our Savior and Lord are we made righteous because we cannot keep God’s perfect standard on our own.
However, God wants you to display His righteousness in your new life, but this is possible only as you consistently submit your will to the Holy Spirit and depend on Him to empower you.
As Christians, we must hold fast to the righteous standards set forth by the Sovereign Ruler of the universe. God will hold every person accountable. Whose standards of right are you following?
“Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith. He was even called the friend of God,” James [2:23].
Tomorrow we will continue to discover God’s character exploring how God is just. Thank you for joining me on this trek called life. Encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
That will finish our trek for today. If you would like to listen to any of our past 775 treks or read the Wisdom Journal, they are available at Wisdom-Trek.com. You can also subscribe to iTunes or Google Play so that each day’s trek will be downloaded automatically.
Thank you so much for allowing me to be your guide, mentor, and most of all your friend as I serve you through the Wisdom-Trek podcast and journal.
As we take this trek together, let us always:
- Live Abundantly (Fully)
- Love Unconditionally
- Listen Intentionally
- Learn Continuously
- Lend to others Generously
- Lead with Integrity
- Leave a Living Legacy Each Day
This is Guthrie Chamberlain reminding you to Keep Moving Forward, Enjoy Your Journey, and Create a Great Day Every Day! See you tomorrow!
