Psalm 15 describes the good life for the people of God. It is a character-forming psalm aimed at shaping God’s people into a new community. The good life has both personal and social implications. Personally, the concern of this psalm is that God’s people would have integrity. That we would be advocates for what is right and true and speak honestly in our conversations (v.2). Socially, that we would protect the well-fare and reputation of others (v.3), honor others as they seek to honor the Lord (v.4a) and financially, that we would seek justice above personal gain (v.5a-b).
We pursue the good life of Psalm 15 with the Lord’s help. We trust him to shape us into this new and beautiful community and as we exert ourselves towards these qualities, we can be assured that we will not be shaken or moved, ever (v.5c).
