Lighting the Way

25. The Lord repaid me in accordance with my righteousness, according to the cleanliness of my hands before His eyes. 26. With the kindhearted You act kindly, with the upright man You act uprightly. 27. With the pure You act purely, but with the crooked You act cunningly. 28. For the destitute nation You save, but haughty eyes You humble. 29. Indeed, You light my lamp; the Lord, my God, illuminates my darkness.

Trite expressions usually have some truth in them. One is what goes around comes around (or vica versa). The simple conclusion that I have come to is that the more my actions are duided and directed by righteous (my knowlegde of right and wrong) intent, the better I live, regardless of the outcome.

Practice forgiveness, and stress is reduced. Hold a grudge, plan your revenge, and you waste your time, send stress through your body, fear of discovery, and distrust from even your friends.

Our society is seen by many as being in the same state as when Moses came down from Mount Sinai to discover people worshiping idols and committing every sin under the sun. Maybe they are right. Or they could be wrong. More likely the truth is somewhere in between. There is always hope and there is always the spirit of humanity within us. Thest best is yet to come.
