Defender of Righteousness

You are definer and defender of righteousness. At the cross, You defined what is righteous and forgave my failures. Your sacrifice made me and all who seek Your face righteous before Your throne of heaven. Despite my sin You made me whole at Golgotha. Thank You.

That Monday, many years ago as You walked resolutely toward the cross, You cleansed the temple of charlatans and moneychangers staining House of the Almighty. I fear my America is not much different from those fakes You drove from the temple 2000 years ago. Money and influence drive our every decision.

Please forgive my thoughtless priorities. Help me focus on You and seek Your righteousness. Shine light into the darkness that blinds us. Use me to help others  this week to find You.

AMEN

Scripture: “He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves.” Mark 11:17
