(Pro 2:21 KJV) For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
What kind of a person does God expect me to be? We have two minimum requirements here. I think it is important for us to understand that these are not optional equipment, they are part of the basic package. Living an “upright” (3477) life is not something you can choose to do or not. It is necessary for eternal life.
Years ago I bought my grandmother’s 54 Chevy. She was the original of the “get it cheapest” school. This model was stripped. It didn’t even have a heater or a radio, let alone a/c or stereo. But it did have breaks. It had a steering wheel. It had windshield wipers. You see, you could not drive a car without those basics.
The same with our spiritual lives. It doesn’t matter if you can sing a solo or speak well. It does matter if you are righteous.
So? Focus on the basics in your walk with Jesus. You can add the accessories later.
