Oh To Be Wise Meditations
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed--a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith." This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. It is through faith that a righteous person has life. “Look at the proud! They trust in themselves, and their lives are crooked. But the righteous will live by their faithfulness to God. Wealth is treacherous, and the arrogant are never at rest. They open their mouths as wide as the grave, and like death, they are never satisfied. In their greed they have gathered up many nations and swallowed many peoples. But they will be mocked with these words: You're doomed! You stored up stolen goods and cheated others of what belonged to them. But without warning, those you owe will demand payment. Then you will become a frightened victim. "Woe to him who builds his house by unjust gain, setting his nest on high to escape the clutches of ruin! The LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him. Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.
