HELPFUL TIPS TO LIVING A RIGHTEOUS LIFE.
1. Avoid living flamboyantly. Live according to your means.
2. Avoid pride and unnecessary popularity.
3. Fear God. Those who fear God think twice before they act once. Proverbs 28:1
4. Take no delight in unrighteous gifts.
HOW DOES GOD ENLARGE THE RIGHTEOUS?
1. He always make them the head over a large territory which by merit they are not qualified. (Joseph.) Genesis 41:40
2. God will give him a dream which the outcome shall result into his enlargement. (Jacob.) Gen 31:1-12.
3. If a righteous does not compromise even if he is going through lacks, God will open his understanding to a divine idea that will transform his life. (Isaac.) Gen 26:18-19.
3. If a man remains righteous till old age, at his his old age, his life will not cease from bearing fruit. Psalms 92:14, 2Kings 13:14-19
THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL FLOURISH AS A PALM TREE.
HOW DOES PALM TREE FLOURISH?
1. The height of a Palm tree can reach 70 feet (21 meters)
That is, it has capacity of growing taller than other trees.
So God can make the righteous taller and stronger than the unrighteous.
2. Research clearly reveals that a Palm tree can live up to 200 years. Meaning that God can reward
the righteous with long life.
Therefore, if you wish to live long, dare to live righteously.
- Palm tree is a well rooted tree, supported by several roots (tap and fibrous) which enables it to withstand violent storms. Psalms 34:19, Proverbs 24:16 Therefore, the aid with which you can rise whenever you fall is righteousness.
- Palm tree is a perpetually fruit-bearing tree. Meaning that a righteous man can be a fruit bearer throughout his days on earth. Psalms 92:14
If your life stops bearing fruit suddenly, something has gone wrong somewhere.
TO BECOME A RIGHTEOUS REQUIRES THE GRACE OF CHRIST JESUS. BECAUSE IF JESUS IS NOT IN YOUR LIFE, THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN BE RIGHTEOUS.
