Earlier this week, I began working my way through the Psalms. Psalm 1 is one of my favorites. Want to be blessed? This Psalm has some wisdom to share toward that end.
“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish.” (Psalms 1:1-6)
Take a few minutes to ponder what the Psalmist wrote:
- How is one blessed?
- What is the outcome of the one who is blessed?
- What is the outcome of the wicked?
- What one big idea stands out to you from this Psalm?
- How might the Lord want you to apply this Psalm in your life?
