"Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart."
There are more verses in this psalm, so if you are looking to take up residence in the holy hill, be sure to read the whole thing. :) I liked this first part of the requirements, because it talks about speaking the truth in your heart. :) That fascinates me. It's like being under oath all the time... needing to speak "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth." I wonder how our lives would change if we spoke the truth that is in our hearts. I wonder why we don't. I'm sure part of it is fear of being vulnerable... fear of being hurt or rejected... and probably part of it is not knowing. That's probably the scariest part too, since if we don't know ourselves that well, then we don't even have the choice of expressing our heart's truth. Today, let's look to God to find the truth in our hearts, and speak it, without shame or fear. After all, when you have God on your side what is there to be afraid or ashamed of? :)
