Plus or minus. Positive or negative. Good or evil. Happy or sad. Blessing or cursing. Up or down. Right or wrong.
What do all of these have in common? A result.
Will you like the result? I guess that depends on which position you take.
Our verse of the day comes from Psalm 1:1-6.
“Blessed 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, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That 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.
Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.”
Blessed is the one who does not:
- walk in step with the wicked
- stand in the way that sinners take
- sit in the company of mockers
Blessed is the one whose delight is in the law of the Lord. Blessed is the one who meditates on his law day and night.
There is no blessing for the wicked. The way of the wicked leads to destruction, not blessing.
Did you notice the Lord watches over the righteous? Whatever they do prospers.
The result of following the Lord, delighting in the Lord, and meditating on his law is a blessing. We also experience personal growth.
Are you missing out on the blessings of the Lord? You can change that today.
