“Mark the blameless man and behold the upright, for there is a happy end for the man of peace.” (Psalms 37: 37, Amplified Bible)
A man of integrity, righteousness, purity, and peace surely must reap the rewards of such qualities. There is true satisfaction and real happiness for such a one as this, for he feels content in his own being.
This happy end is available to every one of us. In ourselves and in others, we can behold, truly perceive, that blameless man. This pure ideal is not an aspiration beyond any one of us. It is the truth of all of us. Jesus preached and practiced this principle. As he saw and honored the real man, the one that God made and not the one that mortal beliefs would present, healing came about; the reality of perfection was revealed. The man full of shame and doubt, of evil and of mistaken motives, was cast out and off, and the real man emerged, radiant with goodness.
We can see what Jesus saw and what the inspired psalmist recommends in the passage cited. We can look upon ourselves not as our human judgment would paint us—ignorant, fearful, limited, bad, foolish, lost—but as God designed and created us to be. We can recognize the Truth of our being and see that goodness in others as well.
God did not make sin or sinners. He made men of peace, of Love, of innocence and integrity. Let’s rejoice in actively beholding and being this blameless man of God and gratefully experience the happiness of being and seeing God’s peaceful creation everywhere.
