If I was asked to choose a favorite psalm, it might be the first one. Psalm 1 is packed full of wisdom and in many ways, encapsulates the overarching theme of all the psalms. Today the message I heard focused on Psalm 1. As always, it started me thinking. Thinking about who or what I allow to influence my life.
Take a moment today to read it through. What stands out to you?
1Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers. 4Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.Psalm 1
