Psalm 119:1 - Blameless & Blessed

"Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the Lord." - NIV

Blameless: Hebrew "Tamim" - complete, sound, unblemished, intact, whole

Not only does the absence of evil in one's ways equate to blessing, but the presence of completeness and soundness must be in existence as well. How can you be sure that both are occurring? Walk according to the law of the Lord. Walking is something that you can do either leisurely or briskly. It can be used to accomplish a task or enjoy your surroundings. No matter what pace or situation your walk is currently at, it must be in accordance with the law of the Lord. No walker can remain on their feet, blameless and blessed, without adhering to the law. Because Christ has given us freedom, does not give us an excuse to ignore the law. (1 Peter 2:16, Galatians 5:13) Adhering to the commands solidifies blessing from the Commander to the commanded.
