“For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.”Psalms 1:6
The Bible is filled with comparisons and contrasts of righteousness and wickedness. We find an example of this in Psalm 1, which depicts the pathway to blessing as opposed to the pathway to destruction. If we choose to take the path to blessing, the psalmist cautions us to stay away from the wisdom, lifestyle, and cynicism of the godless. Instead we should take delight in God’s Word and meditate on it day and night. Hiding His Word in our hearts will help us live a life of joyful fellowship with the Lord and identify us as His followers. The Psalm ends with the sobering truth that the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. The good news is this: Christ came to save the perishing! So make sure you know Him, and if you do, share Him with someone this very day.
