    My Mom had me memorize this chapter when I was a child. It has been a help all of my life. I love it!
  • Zenus Thomas
    When I read Ps 1---I go to Gal 5:16--26. Be very aware of the LUST of THE FLESH
  • Daphne Brown
    My mother (deceased 10 years now) highlighted this verse in the bible and placed my name next too it. In my spirit, I believe this verse is speaking to the righteous. It is so easy to get caught up in the world and what's "popular" that majority of us don't take the time to thank God for what we have. We are sinners and God understands that but if you are a true believer God expects more.
  • Paulette Bonds
    We should do what is pleasing to the Lord. We are not perfect beings and there will be times when we do things that are not to his satisfaction. Do not sat in judgment of those whom are weak. If they fall do what you can to lift them up because we are his people and the sheep of his pastures. Be obedient to his word and Praise his name continuesly.

    Psalms 1 talks about the beauty of being righteous and how the favour of God is upon those who do good and serve Him diligently. It then explains that the ungodly will be punished because they do not follow His counsel.
  • Melvin
