Discussion for Psalms 1

    The "way" is lifestyle. Walking is ones purpose or plans, standing is to occupy and sitting is to take rest or comfort. To delight is to know, desire and enjoy. The chaff has no purpose but to be wind driven willy-nilly, Jesus our righteousness allows us to stand in judgement and believers rest in the company of the congregation of other believers. God always knows where we are.
