Psalm 1 for Psalm Sunday

I love reading the Psalms; there is so much wisdom and such great prayers to be found there. As part of accepting the challenge to post every day in 2011, I have decided to use Sundays to post all or part of a Psalm. I’m not going to include any commentary on the Psalm because sometimes I think it is important to let the Word speak for itself.

Psalm 1

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

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.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. This is a beautiful idea, and, you’ve chosen a great one to start with. Thanks for including verse 3 … it’s exactly what I needed to hear today.

    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.

    Blessings to you!

    • Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I haven’t been to your blog in awhile, but just was there. I think I’ve been missing out by not reading every day. So many blogs, so little time! But no matter how little time we have, if we stay rooted in His Word we will be like a tree planted by the river. He will sustain us. Peace, Linda

    • Ben, I actually got the idea from your Sunday hymn posting, which I love reading, too! It’s funny to see someone who could read the Psalms anytime he likes, and has undoubtedly read them all many times, show such excitement over the idea of reading them posted here. I really intended this blog feature for those who aren’t familiar with the Psalms, but hopefully the excitement of readers like you will rub off on them. Peace, Linda

  2. ‘Psalm Sunday’ … I like this 🙂

    Gracias, Linda. I think the Psalms hold most of my favourites .

    I like the blessings that follow the righteous but tremendous responsibility comes with being one of those. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it on our own… we have the Holy Spirit to guide us.

    Blessings

    • Ann, Thanks. I liked the idea, too, because I often want to share Psalms. I am hoping having it as a regular feature will be a blessing to others, especially those who are not familiar with Psalms. Peace, Linda

  3. I love the Psalms and can’t read them enough! 🙂 Always something there for me or to encourage someone I know. God bless you and Psalm Sundays! 🙂
