If Righteousness Is the Foundation of Life, What Is the Foundation of Righteousness?

Righteousness (morality) is the foundation of all successful living.  Adam and Eve failed at the outset of their lives because of a failure to obey God.  Since then we have all fallen short.  Thus our lives have been crippled at the foundation.  When we do right, we restore that foundation; when we don’t, we continue its destruction. 

You may not have had God speak words directly to you in a garden but you have a conscience.  That conscience is your source of moral knowledge.  The more you listen to that conscience, and follow it, the more of God’s blessings you  bring into your life.

What then is the foundation of righteousness?  Faith.  Faith in God.  To pursue righteousness while ignoring God is like pursuing eggs while ignoring hens. 

If you would learn righteousness, first acknowledge the source of all righteousness: God Himself.  Repent of thinking you can do what is right without Him.

Summing up: to get your life right, do right; to do right, trust God.

The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.
