Not a fan of that word righteous. Ick. Sounds kind of pompous to me. I like these synonyms better: good, virtuous, upright, upstanding, decent. It’s funny how a word can take on different meanings and feelings.
Because it is good to be righteous. I want to be upright, upstanding, decent. I want people to look at me and know I live by faith in Jesus–and those are all the things He stands for. I just want to make sure I live in virtuous humility.
Yeah, virtuous. Much better word. And humility–takes out all of that pompous Pharisee-ness. I want people to look at me and say, “–Wow, she is a HOT MESS. But at least she has got her faith and is holding tight!”
How about you?
