Those who pursue righteousness and kindness
will find life, righteousness, and honor.
What are you pursuing in life? A career, a family, a future that looks a certain way, financial stability, happiness? Whatever you are pursuing, it must mean that you are devoting time and energy into achieving it. It must also mean that you have a goal and that goal is what guides you in much of what you do.
This promise in Proverbs 21 says that when we give ourselves to the pursuit of righteousness and kindness, we will find life, righteousness, and honor. What a marvelous gift it is to receive salvation, God’s righteousness through Jesus, and transformed lives! All of this is ours when we pursue the One who in His mercy pursues us by grace.
Lord, thank You for the promise of life, righteousness, and honor. Help us to pursue your righteousness by your grace. We praise you because when we do, we find that You, who love us more than we could ever think or imagine, pursue us! Amen.
