Psalm 37 tells us how to please God:

   :1. Fret not thyself
Fret not, is mentioned 3 times in this Psalm :  “because of evildoers, fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.”
In short, worry about your own walk with God first.  Get your life straight and leave others alone.  God will take care of the rest.”
   :2.  Trust in the Lord,
Trust in the Lord:  ” and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.  trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
   :3.  Delight thyself also in the Lord:
Delight in the Lord:  ” and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  he (The Lord ) delighteth in his (your) way.”
   :4.  Commit thy way unto the Lord;
Commit thy way unto the Lord:  ” trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”  Commitment doesn’t mean much if not joined with Trust.
   :5.  Rest in the Lord,
Rest in the Lord:  ” and wait patiently for him: fret not ”  Rest, Wait, Fret not all in one, this comes from commitment and trust.
   :6.  Cease from anger,
Cease from anger: (now He’s meddling )  ” and forsake wrath: fret not ” again building one from another, all  relie on the others.
   :7.  Depart from evil, and do good
Depart from evil: ” and do good; and dwell for evermore. For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.”
   :8.  Wait on the Lord, and keep his way,
Wait on the Lord:  ” Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.”
   :9.  Mark the perfect man,
Mark the perfect man:  ” and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.”

Are you wondering how to improve your walk with the Lord?  The directions are right here:

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.  Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.”

Now Lord, help us to walk in them.
