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;
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
This is one of my favorite Psalms!!!
So ho can we be blessed???
- Do not seek the counsel (advice) of the ungodly
- Do not stand in the paths of sinners
- Do not sit in the seat of the scornful
We need to be careful of our “friends”. Are they people that will lift us up, or bring us down??? Will they influence us to do unrighteous (bad) things??? Friends DO have a big impact on our lives….
If you “need” to spend time with ungodly people, do you shine like a bright light set on a hill??? Don’t let your light be quenched!!!
