Psalm 1 Commentary

Psalm 1 Commentary

There is a constant fight within the saint. It’s godliness versus wickedness. Wickedness is sponsoring many ‘feel-good’ and ‘make-good’ ideologies. Out there life is good but the way of godliness is joyless and bad. This Psalm is written to dispel this wrong notion. The saint’s life is blessed, fortunate, prosperous, and favored by the LORD.

You can tell the level of your spirituality by how much love you have for God’s word. The straggling saint has very little time for meditation on the Law of the LORD.

The saint is blessed; let the saint know. The wicked are not blessed; again, let the saint know. The saint is warned against the temptation to consider wickedness a blessing. The results of wickedness may have the appearance of success but it is all nothing and comes to nothing at the end of the day.
