Today's daily words of encouragement word is Upright: God loves the upright in heart . Upright is being a righteous child of God and trying to live an upright life in the eyes of God. It's our responsibility to live a spiritually clean and righteous life according to to Gods word.  We as children of God want to be able to please man but as long as we please God,  nothing else matters in life. Pleasing God is the only thing we have to be corned with in this life.  Our God is a spiritual being, whose is all about being fair, pure true and righteous.

We should all fashion our lives after him who created from the dust in his own image.  If we live a virtuous and righteous life, than we will be walking in Jesus footsteps.  Living an upright life may be hard, but it's  not impossible to those who loves Jesus. All we have to do is remember he died on the cross for our sins, so what can be any harder than being crucified for sins didn't commit.

Like you brought out creativeone - it may be a challenge to live an upright life, but with God's help, we can achieve anything. Besides, he wouldn't ask us to do anything he doesn't think we can accomplish.

Though it is true that living an upright life may be hard, but as far as I am concerned, all of life is (smile). So why would Christians shy away from upright living because it is hard? We don't.

Great hub!!

Forever His,

Oh.. but it is so challenging to live virtuously...

One of my friends told me..as I have been telling him people don't always want to hear what I say, because I say it as it is and he told me.

"To be honest in a world that runs on lies is rather dangerous"

Thank you for this hub.
