How to know your walk pleases God

How can we be sure our walk is pleasing to our Lord? Praise God, He does not change and He has given us a clear and succinct word in both the Old and New Testaments.
Ps 15:1-5  A Psalm of David. LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.  He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a 
reproach against his neighbour. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
2Pe 1:5-8  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity [love]. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
How wonderful! Psalm 15 gives us a picture of 2 Peter put into action! If we do these things, we will never be moved and we will know that our walk is fruitful. Amen. :)
Remember to savor your Saviour!
