Righteousness Braces and Graces

Standard

I found these coloring card packs, of the Psalms and of the Proverbs. I like the compact advice, especially this in Proverbs 4:18 “The path of righteousness is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full of the day. ”  

I have started to understand righteousness by thinking of the mechanical process of being righted, and the spiritual process of being made more Jesus-like, that we will “look right” forgiven in God’s eyes. Being righted like a flag or anything that falls down, being made upright. Righteousness in the Lord BY the Lord. He burns brighter in us, we stand taller by His strength, we walk a more and more sure path. Not an easy path is promised but a sure one. Like the morning sun, the path becomes clearer within a cloudy foggy world. If anything, the ever increasing sunshine helps you know you are headed the right way in righteousness of Him who placed that Sun in perfect alignment for life.

There is a cute video of a baby giraffe who needed orthotic braces to walk until His legs healed – and then he was “righted”. The last video shot shows the giraffe ready to rejoin his family.

God gives us life BRACES to help start our walk, Jesus’s GRACES help us keep walking, and God’s Holy Spirit helps us complete our RACES. 

Amen 


“The path of righteousness is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full of the day. “
