Psalm 32:5, 51:1b NIV 2011
Then I acknowledge my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord.” And you forgave the guilt of my sin.
According to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.
God spoke to Solomon disclosing his father, David, walked with “integrity of heart.” 1 Kings 9:4a, “As for you, if you walk before me faithfully with integrity of heart and uprightness, as David your father did.” Adam and Eve gave birth to sin, which continues today. David was aware of his sins and continually went before the Lord to confess them. 2 Samuel 12:13, “Then David said to Nathan, ‘I have sinned against the Lord.’” David’s integrity and moral compass was found in the consistent standard he followed. David prayed, repented and asked for forgiveness. A godly moral compass guides believers back to God.
Hiking in the snow requires the use of a compass if you get off the beaten path. Thankfully when we were training to climb Mt. Rainier, we each had a compass just incase we needed a guide back to the trail. Having my Bible app on my smart phone helps me when I’m on the go in need of a little godly direction during the day. In essence I don’t leave home with out a compass, my Bible. My godly moral compass guides me back to God daily.
How do we reveal our moral compass?
Guided by the Lord,
