Lesson 8: Wisdom for Righteous Living (Psalms 119, 90, 81, 141)
"Remember the thief on the cross!" In the debate over what righteousness by faith means, the experience of that thief gives us confidence that our works will not save us. Have you ever heard a Christian who argues the importance of right living say, "Remember the thief on the cross?" If you think about this, that thief is a powerful lesson about how our life can be if we ignore the teachings of the Bible on right living. That thief ended life on earth with the most embarrassing and painful death. Let's jump into our study of the Psalms to learn more about how life is better if we follow God's rules!

Can the Bible help you get promoted at work? Can the Bible increase your pay? Can the Bible help you keep your job? Improve your marriage? The answer is “Yes!” The Bible teaches principles of “emotional intelligence” that can actually help you to be smarter and get along better.
