“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful!” Psalm 1:1
As I listened to the attacks on people running for office in this state and nation I wonder are there any honest, dependable people left? According to Facebook and the Media we are surrounded by liars, cheaters, hypocrites and just really rotten people! No one is exempt from the accusations! Something that happened in your life 25 years ago can come back and haunt you whether it is true or not. And Facebook and other social media sites have made bullies out of cowards, you can say anything you want with no validation needed!
A caution to our young people! The Psalmist says, in our modern way of speaking, be careful who you hang around with, for they can be a bad influence in your life! And your association with people can affect your reputation for your entire life!
But the Psalmist finishes by saying, “But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in His word 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 whither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper!”
This is sound advice for all of us not matter what age we are! Stay in the Word, surround yourself with people of like faith, and do not give a foothold to the devil. And when attacked by the ungodly, do not sink to their level; pray that they might come to know Christ as YOU know Him!
In Christ’s love Brother Freddy
