A Lamp to My Feet Reminder – Psalm 1:1-3


Today is the last day of the first “memory verse challenge” here. The weekly passages are posted on Monday and conclude on Sunday. During the week you are encouraged to meditate on the verse each day, even throughout each day, so that it is not just a memory game but something that can become a part of you. This week we focused on Psalm 1:1-3:

Psalm 1:1-3 (ESV)

1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

If you participated this week please comment to this post or the original post letting all of us know how you did with the verse. Were you able to memorize it? What did you learn this week from meditating on it? Did anything stand out to you? Did you do any type of study on the verse? If you have no idea what this is about read the original announcement here and subscribe to future passages.

I look forward to hearing how you did!

Like a Tree Planted by Streams of Water – Psalm 1:1-3


Every time I read these verses I feel refreshed and challenged. I also thought the meditation on the law taking place in verse two and the imagery of what that can do to someone in verse three would be an appropriate way to kick this off.

Psalm 1:1-3 (ESV)

1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

Don’t forget to comment on this post during the week with your thoughts or if you need tips on memorizing and meditating on verses. Then come back on Sunday to let everyone know how you did with the verse and your final thoughts.
