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.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD.
Three negatives displaced by a single positive! Whatever we’re doing – whether walking, standing or sitting – it will only bring us happiness and contentment if it is focussed on the Lord. What is the focal point of our delight? The Lord said, ‘Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’ (Matt 6:21) Do we treasure the words of the Lord and his law? How do we spend our time? It’s said that you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. Do we spend our time with the wicked, sinners or mockers? Or with the Lord? Challenging questions!
