Delight in Discipline!

Psalm 1:1-3, Common English Bible

Spiritual discipline takes practice and practice takes patience.  The Psalmist is inviting his listeners to read God’s Instruction Manual.  The manual equips the godly to delight in the Lord!  But there are always two ways to live.  What area in your life do you need more discipline?  Discipline reminds us to remember …

Happiness is possible!
The truly happy person doesn’t follow wicked advice, doesn’t stand on the road of sinners, and doesn’t sit with the disrespectful.   Psalm 1:1

Delight comes from meditation!
Instead of doing those things, these persons love the Lord’s Instruction, and they recite God’s Instruction day and night!   Psalm 1:2

Commune with God!
They are like a tree replanted by streams of water, which bears fruit at just the right time and whose leaves don’t fade.  Whatever they do succeeds.   Psalm 1:3

Hear the W.O.W., the Words of Wisdom,
“Delight in the Law of the Lord!”
