how to get dinner invites from God
The secret according to David in Psalm 15:
“God, who gets invited to dinner at your place? How do we get on your guest list?
“Walk straight, act right, tell the truth.
“Don’t hurt your friend, don’t blame your neighbor; despise the despicable.
“Keep your word even when it costs you, make an honest living, never take a bribe.
“You’ll never get blacklisted if you live like this.””
I’ve been reading the Bible in ‘The Message’ version translated by Eugene Peterson and I must say it does have a way of putting God’s word in our modern context and thus, really bringing it real for me.
