This week's study: Psalm 1
Questions for the Text:
- Why does the author use the word “delight” in verse two?
- How are we to understand the phrase “whatever they do prospers” in verse three? Does this mean that Christians will always get their way?
Questions for Our Lives:
- How do we love and share Christ with the scoffers and mockers in our lives, without becoming too influenced by them?
- What ways does our culture make it hard to cultivate a meditative mindset?
Now or Later
