Welcome to our first study from the book of Psalms.
Read Psalm 1
1. What is your understanding of the Biblical word “Blessed?”
2. If the word “blessed” means someone who is “in” with God, who finds favor with God, what are the qualities of the person with whom God wants to have a relationship?
3. What is the difference between a man who sits with scoffers and stands with sinners, and the man who delights himself in the word of God, meditating on it day and night? Can a person do both? Why not?
4. What should a righteous person be willing to give up in order to have a relationship with God? Why is this life choice important if someone wants to worship God?
5. According to v. 5,6, what is God’s relationship with and response to the wicked? What is his relationship with the righteous?
6. Make a list of your top 10 acquaintances. What is their commitment to God’s ways? Should you continue relationships with these friends? According to this Psalm, how can you be friends with them without becoming like them? What do you need to do to build your relationship with other godly people and to extract yourself from self-destructive relationships with godless people?
7. From what we’ve learned in this Psalm, if you want to have a relationship with God and want to worship Him, what do you need to do? What will you do this week to put that plan into action?
“For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.” – Psalm 1:6**
