Right speaking or speech,
Right use of wealth and finances.
We could not go to God on His Holy Hill.<br> God came to this earth from His Holy Hill, to die for our sins, so we can be declared righteous and innocent, and then we can go to God's Holy Hill.
Psalms comes from the Latin for songs. The Hebrew name for this book of the Bible, Tefillim, means 'praises'.
We can control what we think.
When we are down, we can:
- give up and walk away
- read comforting scriptures (which lead to comforting thoughts, and to real shalom or peace)
When we are down, we can either rehearse the problem or thank God for the coming solution.

They were killed because they believed that God alone, was God.
When tempted to envy the ungodly for their wealth, power, or fame remember this… This earth is as close to heaven as an unbeliever will ever be. As a born again believer, this is as close to hell as you ever be.
