What is the key to life? According to our scripture passage for today, it is in fearing and obeying the Lord. When God rules he orders your life, your time, your family, and your work. Jesus said it this way in the New Testament, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”
A song of ascents.
1 Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
who walk in obedience to him.
2 You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
4 Yes, this will be the blessing
for the man who fears the Lord.
5 May the Lord bless you from Zion;
may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life.
6 May you live to see your children’s children—
peace be on Israel.
