BLESSING FOR DELIGHT

MORE ON WILLING OBEDIENCE

Yesterday's study connected love for God with obedience for God. If we love him, we obey his commandments, Jesus says. We saw that the principle was taught in both the old and new testaments.

Here is another verse to that effect. It is Psalm 1:1-2:

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.

In simple terms, you are blessed if you delight in God's law and avoid the ways of sin.

Delight in God's standards of living. It is not meant to be a burden but a blessing. Look at a newspaper today and see how many people suffer from the consequences of sin.

Instead of suffering, you can delight in God's law today and rejoice that you are blessed. You are blessed both by your delight in God's law and by your avoidance of suffering the consequences of sin.

Have a blessed day.
