Psalm 15

1 O LORD, who shall sojourn in thy tent? Who shall dwell on thy holy hill?
2 He who walks blamelessly, and does what is right, and speaks truth from his heart;
3 who does not slander with his tongue, and does no evil to his friend, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
4 in whose eyes a reprobate is despised, but who honors those who fear the LORD; who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
5 who does not put out his money at interest, and does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved. 

(RSV)

————————————————————————

O Lord there are many things I do not understand,

But your Law is in my heart.

The things you ask of me are not complicated,

But they are hard for my nature to obey.

    So simple. Love God, love your neighbor as yourself and everything will fall into place. If we could all remember to do that!
    Dear Lord,
    Help me to remember to love unconditionally, even when I am not being “loved” back.
