“A Contrast between Two Men: The Godly verses the Ungodly!”

 

Psalm l

Psalm one is a picture of a blessed (happy) man, but also a picture of Jesus Christ in the midst of ungodly sinners.

In verses 1-2 we see the PRACTICE of the blessed man.

In verse 3 we see the POWER of the blessed man.

In verses 4-6 we see the PERMANENCY of the blessed man.

Listening to counsel is good, but listening to the counsel of the ungodly is not walking by faith. Our counsel must come from godly men.

The ungodly just simply “leave God out.”

Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Proverbs 16:2, “All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.”

Isaiah 55:7, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

Isaiah 53:6, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

God is opposed to the “scornful” man:

Proverbs 1:22, “How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?”

Proverbs 3:34, “Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.”

CONTINUED TOMORROW!
