God is utterly righteous. He Loves righteousness and hates iniquity. His face shines approvingly on those who walk uprightly, but God is angry with the wicked every day. Psalm 7:11
It is impossible to please God while being unrighteous, both as to outward conduct and the character of one’s soul.
O Righteous Father, ALL of Your decisions and ALL of Your actions are just. You, Lord, Love righteousness and demand it in us. But we are unrighteous by birth; we were conceived and born fallen creatures. We are Your children, wearing the righteousness of Your Son. Help us to live righteously before You and do those things that please You. Amen.
