Becoming a Psalm 1 person

Nicholas Hor

Scripture: Psalm 1

Due to AV problem we were unable to record the sermon.

Here are the questions:

1) Read the text together and share key thoughts you received from last weeks sermon.

2) In v. 1, The Psalmist tells us that the blessed (righteous) man is not only about who you are, but also about who you are not. There is also a gradual progression on how a person can turn to wickedness.  Give examples of how you have seen a person turn from walking to sitting in the seat of wickedness in our world today.

3) What does it mean t o delight and meditate in the law of the Lord (v.2) Give some examples/application

4) The righteous is described as a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in season and its leaf does not wither (v. 3)  What do you think the Psalmist was trying to convey by using this imagery?

5) How can V. 5 (the wicked will not stand in the judgment) and V. 6 (The LORD knows the way of the righteous and wicked) give us comfort and encouragement?  How can we respond to these verses?
