In this session he talks about the Righteous man and the characteristics found in Psalm 112. A good man is one who can take adversity, who is a pillars in his own community and family and can bless God as did Job and Abraham. He is benevolent, lends freely and is generous. A man who has a steadfast heart in spite of circumstances which come and go. Our ultimate security rests with Christ who triumphed over death. A generous man who scatters one’s gifts to the poor. who delights in God’s teaching, not an obligation. Such a model is Marvin Wilson.
