On What Does Your Mind Dwell?

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 1–3.
What you think on determines what kind of person you are. Therefore, listen to what David said about the source of your thinking. First, you have to make a decision about what you will not think on,
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful…
(Psalm 1:1)
Then, you have to decide to think on the right thing,
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
(Psalm 1:2)
David showed why the blessed man decides against the counsel of the ungodly and decides for the Law of the Lord,
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
(Psalm 1:3, 4)
Shall you be dried up like the chaff that blows away or shall you be rooted like a tree that lasts forever? You are the one who makes the decision.
