He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour. -Proverbs 21:21, KJV
Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor. -Proverbs 21:21, ESV
Sometimes I feel like all I do is repeat myself.
But with the words of Life, it is good and proper to have things repeated.
Case in point, there is only one way to find righteousness, and it is summed up in the [two] Greatest Commandment[s]:
“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.”
Jesus also tells us,
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
If you truly desire life, righteousness, and honor, seek God through Christ. It is His righteousness gifted to us through His sacrifice on the cross and imputed by the Holy Spirit that brings these rewards.
And I will repeat it all my days.
