MrsDrPoe: Psalm 1

It's Theology Thursday on the blog, and as always, I invite you to open up your Bibles as we look into another portion of God's word.

Psalm 1

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leafe also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so, but ar like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

A couple of thoughts from this psalm:

First, we can see the progression of sin in the first few lines- we begin by asking ungodly people for advice then by carrying through with sinful actions (Jas 1:13-16).

We also see that there are ONLY two choices- we follow the way of the LORD and are righteous in His sight, or we refuse to and perish as the ungodly.

We must be very careful of the company we keep, the desire of our hearts, and the actions that we take.  I hope these thoughts have been helpful to you on this very lovely Thursday!
