Righteousness is a biblical word that speaks to our relationship with God and others.
David addressed the character of one who understands both relationships when he said, “He works righteousness” (Ps. 15:2).
We must hunger and thirst for righteousness (Mt. 5:6), our righteousness must exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees (Mt. 5:20), and we must seek first His righteousness (Mt. 6:33).
The guide for life, food for our soul, ethical character, and our priorities are framed by Jesus.
God should trust and the world should know that our choices are righteous. Start by asking, “Is it right with God?”
