Psalm 112: 11 Characteristics of a Righteous Person

Psalm 112

What does a righteous person look like?

• A righteous person fears the Lord (v 1).
• A righteous person delights in God’s Word (v 1).
• A righteous person has his or her needs met by the Lord (v 3).
• A righteous person is able to discern the right path (v 4).
• A righteous person is gracious (v 4).
• A righteous person is merciful (v 4).
• A righteous person is generous (v 5).
• A righteous person is just (v 5).
• A righteous person is unafraid of bad news (v 7).
• A righteous person trusts the Lord (v 7).
• A righteous person gives to the poor (v 9).

Two things happen when we live this way:

  1. We are blessed by the Lord (v 1).
  2. We are hated by the enemy (v 10).

When we live righteously, we should expect (not be shocked by) angry opposition from the enemy. But we should also expect to be blessed by our Father in heaven who sees and knows all.
