Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. Psalm 1:1,2

This verse contains a lot of wisdom.

You will be a happy, blessed person if you meditate on God’s laws day and night. God’s laws should delight us.

We will be happy if we do not walk with wicked people, or stand with people who are sinning, or sit with people who are mocking others.

I have witnessed some very happy Christians! Their eyes sparkle, and a smile is almost continuously on their faces. They seem to ‘glow’. This is in stark contrast to people who hate God and His laws.

Hanging out with bad company can corrupt good character.

Be happy, and delight in God’s laws! Meditate on them day and night. Keep company with people who set out to do good things and who have Godly goals!

Dear Lord, Thank You for good friends that influence us to do good things. Keep us on the right path. Put Your word in our heart so that we won’t sin against You. Help us to delight in Your laws, and meditate on them. Thank You! Amen.

  1. Amen. Notice the progression: You start out walking with them, then standing, and finally sitting down with them. We get more and more comfortable with those who are opposed to God and His ways.
