Path of the righteous
Proverbs 4:18 tells us the following, "The path of the righteous is like the morning sun shining ever brighter till the full light of day." Righteous means being blamless, ethical, good, holy, honest, honourable, law-abiding, moral and upright.
Within life we strive to become the things mentioned above. It is our nature that sees us behaving rather different then righteous. For example, we need to be honest about ourselves, such as, who we are as a person and that is to be ourselves or try to be law-abiding, which could mean we need to do right within our community. That is why we need to see the way of the Lord. Jesus was honest, moral, upright, holy, good, ethical etc. As Christians we not able to be perfect like Jesus but we can try to be a better person. To do this is to learn His word and lead by example, such as, to help quide our children and youth, to do the right thing.
Jesus is our guidance (through the Holy Spirit) and is the protection we need. So to be righteous is to do right within life and to follow Jesus because with Jesus, all things are possible.
