Sacrifices of Righteousness

“Offer the sacrifices of righteousness and put your trust in the Lord. There are many who say ‘who will show us something good?’” (Psalm 4: 5, 6)

David wrote these words in the middle of the night because he could not sleep. Like many of us he was doing the expedient thing and not the right thing. That kept him awake because he was a man of great integrity.

In the middle of the night he had a little “board meeting” with himself. He then resolved to make whatever sacrifices he needed to make to do the right thing. He was doing the expedient thing because he didn’t see how he could possibly survive if he did the right thing. That’s why in addition to doing the right thing he resolved to put his trust in the Lord.

His motivation for this values clarification was that he knew he was governing people who were hoping and praying that their leader would be a man who would do right no matter what it cost him.

In our world of relative morality with no universal, absolute truth regarding right and wrong there has never been a greater need for those who lead believers to resolve to make whatever sacrifices they must make to do what is right-and then put their trust in the Lord.

If you are a spiritual person facing a similar kind of challenge if you would implement David’s resolution it would be an example to a lot of people-and it would glorify God-big time!

    I have recently be made aware of an inconsistancy in my life doing what was necessary to live but not
    realizing that it was grossly currupt applicate of ethics in my life. I was never aware or I was blinded
    To the reality of situational ethics and how it had possessed my life.
    The only way out is to repent, confess, and resolve to life by s of r.

    Thanks for this article
