There are two kinds of trees; some find streams of water and live to produce fruit and achieve their purpose, and some whose roots find no sustenance and die. Trees that die miss their purpose and become firewood in fireplaces or campfires.

                There are two kinds of people; some find their delight in God’s own word, and some find their delight in the counsel of worldly desires. People who find their delight in God’s word will live fruitful lives to the glory of God and achieve God’s purpose for their lives. People who find their delight in worldly desires will live for themselves and forfeit God’s purpose for their lives.

                God gets the glory when we choose His word as our delight, and we in turn get what God wants us to have – His blessing in all that we do!

The Psalmist says it like this:

1    Blessed is the man

who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked

or stand in the way of sinners

or sit in the seat of mockers.

2      But his delight is in the law of the Lord,

and on his law he meditates day and night.

3      He is like a tree planted by streams of water,

which yields its fruit in season

and whose leaf does not wither.

Whatever he does prospers.

4      Not so the wicked!

They are like chaff

that the wind blows away.

5      Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,

nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6      For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,

but the way of the wicked will perish. – Psalm 1 (NIV)

Give glory to God delight in His word and be blessed by Him.
