The happiness of a good person

Happy is the person, who has reverence for the Lord,

Who takes pleasure in obeying His commands’

The good man’s children will be powerful in the land;

His descendants will be blessed.

His family will be wealthy and rich.

And he will be prosperous forever.

 

Light shines in the darkness for good men,

For those who are merciful, kind and just.

Happy is the person who is generous with his loans, who runs his business honestly.

A good person will never fail; he will always be remembered.

 

He is not afraid of receiving bad news;

His faith is strong, and he trusts in the Lord.

He is not worried or afraid;

He is certain to see his enemies defeated.

He gives generously to the needy,

And his kindness never fails; he will be powerful and respected.

The wicked see this and are angry;

They glare in hate and disappear;

Their hopes are gone forever. (Psalms 112).

I read these words and found them really inspirational. Thought I should share; sometimes I wake up low on motivation, and when I read this chapter from the book of Psalms, I felt uplifted. Hope you find it as inspiring as I did.
