Home. It’s where it begins. Have you heard the saying, “Charity begins at home”? Well, that’s not really what I’m talking about today; I’m talking about godliness. King David saw it that way as he expressed his desire in Psalm 101:2, “I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.” Godliness in a society begins with godliness in a home. And that begins with godliness in a heart – a “perfect” heart, which simply means one that is marked by integrity and uprightness. I look around and see a culture of spiritual decline. In fact, I read an article just today that gives very convincing arguments and statistics that the United States of America is now a major mission field. Often, we as believers loudly bemoan the state of our society as it becomes more and more spiritually and Scripturally disengaged. I’ve certainly been one of those bemoaners; haven’t you? Well, as we list all the ills we see befalling our nation, have we checked inside the four walls we call home? In the home, are we fostering godly hearts that will produce a godly home that can reach out to impact a world for the godly cause of the gospel? Commenting on this verse, someone observed that the home is “where godliness should begin, but ironically, where David forfeited it by sinning with Bathsheba.” And that failure devastated his home and community. I hope you can join us at Berean this Sunday morning as we go through Psalm 101 to learn what the Bible teaches about having a godly heart and, hence, a godly home. Only then can we have a godly influence on a society that desperately needs God. Home. It’s where it all begins.
