“Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
“I say to the Lord, ‘You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.’
As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight.
“The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
“The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
“I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
“Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices;
my flesh also dwells secure.
“You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
Psalm 16: 1-3, 5-9 & 11

He says we must be this way because God needs us to be an example to others. Navan reminds us that God is always in our presence. Therefore, we should treat everyone with the utmost respect and honor, no matter how they may appear on the outside.
