Happy Are Those…

Psalm 1

“Happy are those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
or sit in the seat of scoffers;
but their delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law they meditate day and night.
They are like trees
planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.
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 congregation of the righteous;
for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.”   NRSV

Our “streams of water” that flow next to where we are planted, are the Spirit, love, and knowledge of God. Every way that we strive to drink in more from these sources deepens our roots and adds more fruit to our branches with which to bless our neighborhoods, communities, and world. Cheers, friends!

Be a blessing to someone today!
