The way of the righteous and the wicked...

Psalm 1

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregations of the righteous; for the LORD knows the way fo the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

...and on HIS law he meditates day and night" How I absolutely LONG to do this and sadly, how often I let myself be drawn away.

Beautiful psalm and especially quite nice to read on a quiet Sunday and reflect...

~Thanks for sharing HIS word with us, Kelli!

Love, Julie

I just read this Psalm a few days ago, and it never ceases to refresh my soul. It is so full of promises for us--if we are willing to follow and obey.
Thank you for sharing. I always know I can peek at your blog and be encouraged spiritually. It makes my blog seem so petty. :-(
