Do you realize that you are know 1/3 of the way through the book of Proverbs? You have made it this far--even though you have undoubtedly gotten your toes stepped on a time or two.
Our entire reason for studying the Bible is so that we can know more about God, improve our relationship with Christ, and grow stronger in Him. This is all working towards righteousness. Are we righteous? I don't think any of us feel that we are. We have such a long ways to go. But we are getting there. Step by step. Verse by verse.
If we have accepted Christ, and we have truly tried to 'be good' then, guess what? We are the 'righteous' that these verses describe. Read them and be excited of the things promised!
