Don’t be the chaff!

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. (Psalm 1:4-6)

Unlike the man who finds his joy in God’s Word, the person who does not love and follow God’s commands is destined for judgment and destruction.

Why do you think that the verses are true? How does ungodliness lead to destruction?

Be the tree!

Devotion for April 19, 2012

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. (Psalm 1:2, 3)

Here are some cool questions to help you think about this passage:
Do you think that the tree by the river is a good comparison for someone who knows and loves the Bible? How do they compare?

What do you think it means to “bring forth his fruit in his season”?

What do you think it means that “his leaf also shall not wither”?

How can you apply these verses to your life?
