Text: Psalm 37:25
It is a good thing to live a righteous life. Righteousness can be seen in two different ways; in the sight of God and that of man. Righteousness by human standard is defined as the quality of being morally true or justifiable.
Spiritually, it means the quality of being right in the sight of God, including character and conduct. In the sight of man, righteousness can be seen in good character, good conscience, attitude, and conduct. There are many benefits you can get if you are righteous but for this message, let us look at ten benefits of righteousness.
10 BENEFITS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
1). The Righteous CANNOT Be Forsaken (Psalm 37:25)
Though the enemy comes to attack, God will stand by the righteous and defend him. In Job 1:1, God described Job as a righteous man who shunned evil, but the devil attacked him. In all of Job’s travail, God did not forsake him. God proved his presence in the absence of Job.
2). The Righteous are Always Delivered (Proverbs 11:21)
Evil people will always be punished but the righteous shall be delivered from every trouble. Also, riches does not profit in the day of wrath but righteousness delivers from death.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all”. Psalms 34:19
3). Righteousness Produce Success (Proverbs 2:7)
