Psalm 112 is basically a commending of living rightly for God. So what does living rightly look like according to the psalmist? Here are few of the qualities I noted as I read.

  • Revering the Lord
  • Taking delight in God's commands
  • Acting with grace and extending mercy
  • Being generous
  • Making honesty a lifestyle
  • Trusting in God and putting confidence in Him

As I looked over my list and read back through this encouraging psalm, verse 5, "It is well with the man who lives generously," and verse 9, "He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor" resonated with me. An important part of living for God is being generous with both our time and our resources as we help those in need around us.

Is being generous and helping people in need something you're intentional about? What's one example of you living generously for God in the past few weeks? Were there any other elements or qualities of living rightly that stood out to you from this psalm, and why? Tami

Tami,you have a good list and I appreciate the verses that you chose from Psalms 112 ( 5 and 9).
I need to be more generous with my time as well as my resources.

I saw the needs to help financially and I did send a couple of letters to shut-ins who are not able to get out because of their health. (the ladies are Christians in the 90's)

Since many churches are closed to fellowship with friends we have been using our phones, e-mails and snail mail to uplift others, showing we care and love them and sharing encouraging verses like the ones in our lesson ( Psalms 112) with them.

I struggle with being a worry wart and these two verses were precious to me and a source of encouragement.
vs.6) For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever. 7) He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. 8) His heart is steady; he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
