Psalms 1:1-4 " Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his word does he meditate day and night. He shall be like a tree planted beside the river of water that brings forth it's fruit in it's season. His leaf shall not wither and whatsoever he does shall prosper."

It is important who we listen to and who we chose as our closest friends, There is an old saying "birds of a feather flock together." How true. "Evil communication corrupt good manners." Be careful who you listen to and who you take counsel from.

Blessed is the man who listens to GOD. How does one listen to GOD? He meditates on the word of GOD. He reads it, thinks on it, memorizes it, and allows the word of GOD to infiltrate his life or her life. The word of GOD will transform one's life. The person will be like a tree planted beside a river of life. Water brings forth refreshment, it will water one's soul like a well watered garden. It will bring forth a fruitful life that brings blessing to that person and to others. There is fullness of joy, blessed assurance, and quietness and peace to that blessed person. One's faith grows deep in the word of GOD. That individual is blessed of GOD. He prospers in all that he does.

The ungodly are not so. They are like the chaff which the wind drives away. It speaks of a dry, wasted life that is good for nothing of eternal value. They are taken away and perish. They will not stand in the judgment nor will sinners in the congregation of the righteous. Verse 6 says "For the Lord knows the way of the righteous but the way of the ungodly shall perish."

The blessed life is enjoyed by those who belong to GOD and feast continually on GOD'S word. Revelation 22:17 says "and the Spirit and the bride say come, and let him that hears say come, and let him that thirsts say come, and whosoever will , let him take of the water of life freely. Amen. This is the way and the path of the blessed life.
