Most of us have heard (or perhaps read) of the biographical book, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom," by the British military adventurer, T. E. Lawrence [of Arabia]. But just this morning I began meditating on this theme, ... and THE LORD via the Holy Spirit gave me so very very clearly and succinctly what follows, ... hope you enjoy it...

(Proverbs 9:1, and Psalm 15:1-5)

1) INTEGRITY.Being a man or woman who can be trusted to do what is right in ANY circumstance.

2) Fear and Reverance for GOD & His Laws, Principles, and Decrees.

3) LOYALTY & ALLEGIANCE TO THE KING: to Government & Authority.

4) KINDNESS & MERCY, - *coupled with* wisdom, discernment, and love for Truth.

5) GRACE for the oppressed and the (truly) repentant.

6) KNOW what is subject to change, ... and what is not.
And always act accordingly.

7) HUMILITY that never inflates or exalts "self," - but always highly esteems and honors GOD, - The King and Ruler and Judge of all.

and add to this: fearlessness. ... fearing only GOD: which is always true courage and true wisdom combined.

REMEMBER always Who & What GOD IS, ... and that you are nothing apart from HIS Life and Good Grace.

GOD Is The Supreme Being, ... and The Moral Center of the Universe. Morality *always* involves and revolves around *right relationship/s*.

Wisdom has built her house;
she has carved out its seven pillars. ~ Proverbs 9:1 [NLT]

1 Who may worship in Your sanctuary, Lord?
Who may enter Your presence on Your holy hill?

2 Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right,
speaking the truth from sincere hearts. [1]
3 Those who refuse to gossip
or harm their neighbors
or speak evil of their friends. [2]
4 Those who despise flagrant sinners, [3] and honor the faithful followers of the Lord, [4]
and keep their promises even when it hurts. [5]
5 Those who lend money without charging interest, [6]
and who cannot be bribed to lie about [or take
advantage of] the innocent. [7]
Such people will stand firm forever.
~ Psalm 15 [NLT]

3 Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
who do not worship idols
and never tell lies.

5 They will receive the Lord’s blessing
and have a right relationship with God their Savior.
6 Such people may seek You
and worship in Your presence, O God of Jacob.
~ Psalm 24:3-6 ~
