In my devotion yeterday I came across a piece of scripture that spoke to me about the Knightly virtues.

16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
but the Lord weighs the spirit.
3 Commit your work to the Lord,
and your plans will be established.
4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose,
even the wicked for the day of trouble.
5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;
be assured, he will not go unpunished.
6 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord,
he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8 Better is a little with righteousness
than great revenues with injustice.
9 The heart of man plans his way,
but the Lord establishes his steps.

These verses from Proverbs 16 speaks of the path that we are walking down, sometimes we think we have made the right choice but God will measure your spirit and only by first seeking Gods kingdom (Matt 6:33) we will attain the goals we have set for our selves. What really got me though was verse six. Thinking back on yesterdays post about forgiveness, forgiveness, charity, grace are all the virtues of a true Knight who will strike down the enemy and then help the fellow human of the ground. But to forgive someone does not mean that they have forgotten the wrong done. So how do we put humptey dumptey back together again?

Well here we can let the wisdom of the proverbs guide us.

By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.

By doing right over and over again, wrongs will be forgotten, by serving, caring, loving and being faithful. By fearing God and staying away from evil only doing good! So in effect Faithfulness, loyalty, generosity will atone for the wrong things we have done.

Today begins my atonement, and even though I might stumble, I will, stay on target, I will be faithful, I will do good, I will serve and love until my time runs out and maybe my iniquity, my missteps will not only be forgiven but also forgotten.
