But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night.
Psalm 1:2 (NLT)
Yesterday we talked about how people can have a bad influence on us. There are all kinds of bad things out in the world and sometimes the music, movies, and television shows we like have them too. We even talked about how some of our friends might be a bad influence. If we want to thrive in our relationship with God then we should stay away from all the bad stuff out there.
Today’s verse tells us that we need to do more than just avoid the bad things. We have to replace those things with good stuff. The number one thing that we should focus on is what the Bible says. If we want to find out how to thrive then we need to know what God says.
When we look at verse two we see TWO things that all of us should do when it comes to God’s word.
Delight In The Law Of The Lord
What are some of the things you like to do? Do you think God is pleased with the things you enjoy? What are some other things you could do?
Meditate On It Day And Night
Do you know any song lyrics from memory? How did you learn them? Do you read your Bible every day? Do you memorize Bible verses? Why do you think this is important?
