“I will walk within my house with a perfect heart” #686

I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh, when will You come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. (Psalm 101:2, NKJV)

King David was not sinless; far from it. Still, he committed his heart to God and when he sinned it tormented his soul (Psa. 32:3-5). His goal was to conduct himself in his house with a perfect (blameless) heart. That’s good counsel for every husband, wife, father, mother and child. Our conduct in our families exposes our heart to those we hold dearest in life. When we hold God most dear in our heart it will show in how we treat our family members. By conducting ourselves in our homes with blameless hearts we set our hope on God’s presence and mercy. Choose the blameless way of wisdom. Walk in your house with your heart wholly given to the Lord God.
