Psalms 53:2
God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.

The Lord shook His head. He gazed upon His creation, the one he had called good. It had been spoiled beyond recognition. He looked for some of His precious birds and beasts and fish, but they were missing. He called out to His children, but they were busy. He longed to gaze at the beauty of the jewel He had set in the skies, but it was dull and faded. The Lord shook His head, then He wept.
What are we doing to the world of the Lord? How does our righteousness measure up with where it should be? If the Lord looked upon the earth to find a righteous man or woman, would He find him or her in us? Live for Jesus, trying always to follow in His blessed footsteps.
Prayer: Make me righteous, Lord. Gaze upon me and be pleased with what You see. Help me to change from what I am now, to what You see I can be. Amen.
