Psalms – Psalm 1

Sunday, June 30: Psalms

Psalm 1

The Principle of the Path by pastor and writer Andy Stanley is one of my favorite books. It’s about the many paths available to us in life that lead to various destinations. Some are good. Some are bad. Some lead to joy and others, sadly, lead to pain and heartache.

The basic idea behind the book is the self-evident truth that, “direction, not intention, determines your destination.” In other words, you can have the best intentions in the world but if you’re not moving in the right direction you are going to end up in the wrong place. Conversely, if you want to end up in the right place you need to be on the road that takes you there.

That same principle essentially sums up one of my favorites Psalms. In Psalm 1, the writer describes two paths we can take in life that can lead to very different destinations. It turns out that there is one way that leads to the life you want and there is another way that leads to a life you don’t want. Which is which? That’s what we’re going to talk about. See you on Sunday.

  1. Thanks Gary for the reminders to have roots that go deep in the word . Listened to this in Panama as we do life with our son and his family. I needed this encouragement today.
