All of God’s works are done in truth

Psalms 33

For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.  -kjv

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
    the earth is full of his unfailing love.  -niv

For the word of the Lord is right, and all His work is trustworthy. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the Lord’s unfailing love.  -hcsb

Observations and comments:

  1. What struck me about this verse is verse 4 in kjv when it says … all his works are done in truth. It shows that to do God’s work, one has to be truthful in all that he does.
  2. Culturally, truth may differ in the way it is expressed. Does one stumble another if one expresses truth in one’s culture but ignores the expression of truth in the other culture? Passage to consider: John 4 about the Samaritan woman and Romans 14 when Paul urges one to eat with restrain when in presence of a spiritually weaker brethen. In the passage of the Samaritan woman, Jesus uses his own expression of living water to induce the conversation with the Samaritan woman. In Romans 14, Paul urges a brethen to take into consideration another brethen’s perspective when eating meat offered to idols. Any thoughts on that?

  1. The scriptures state that we should not offend another even if that person is from another faith or from another country. I receive this that I should never show off my religion or goodness and keep in mind the person I am with is different, has been raised a different way or religion so if we do not know exactly what to do SHOW LOVE & UNDERSTANDING but do what Christ would have done and pray. Then I believe things will turn out fine.
