I noticed it again today as I was reading. “Righteousness” (6666) keeps popping up. The reason that keeps jumping out at me is that so many people claim that it is impossible to live a righteous life or be a righteous person. They love to quote,
(Rom 3:10 KJV) As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:and use it as a proof text. It does not stand alone. If you read a few verse down you come across,
(Psa 14:5 KJV) There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.If you can’t have any righteous how do you have a generation of righteous?
So? My concern is that people will settle for living in defeat and sin because someone likes to quote an isolated verse. God has called us to live upright and godly lives. It does not say perfect, it says righteous. Go for the gold ring.
