For the Lord is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face. (Psalm 11:7)
He Loves Righteous Deeds
Remember when you were small and you did something for your mom because you wanted to see her smile when she discovered it? It might be a little thing. She comes in the room unaware but then sees the flowers you picked for her and she glances over smiling. What a wonderful feeling. It may be that you do something for your dad but he can’t make a big fuss you know because men have to be men but a little smile creases the edge of his mouth and you know you hit a homerun. Grand feelings.
The Lord God Jehovah Creator of the world I AM loves to see His children do righteous things. He smiles with the joy of seeing His people loving one another, caring for one another and forgiving one another. Sometimes it may be a small thing or it could be huge. Regardless, He loves to see righteous living, godly attitudes expressed by those who He calls His own. Adam Clarke said of this psalm, “He loves that which resembles himself.” We look like Him when we live righteous lives.
Today is the middle of the week! Make God smile at you today. Help Him smile all day long. The more you make Him smile the more He showers His love on you.
