For the Lord is righteous, He loves the righteous deeds; the upright shall behold His face.
NOSH: As I meditated on this verse, two insights greatly encouraged and blessed me. First, when we do the right thing, we actually make God happy, i.e. we make Him feel good. Consider that. God has a positive emotional response to something we do. It’s incredible to think that God has given us the capacity to be a blessing to Him and make Him happy. Two, righteousness or doing the right thing before God promotes intimacy or closeness to God. We naturally draw near to people that make us happy, make us feel good or are a blessing to be around. God is no different.
