“Fruit In Its Season”

Blessings folk!

Psalm 1.
A “classic”.

It speaks of a blessed man.
It speaks of the fruit of the blessed.
Fruit in season.

Note how/when the fruit comes.

Psa 1:1-6

How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!

But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.

The blessed man…

  • Who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
  • Who does not stand in the path of sinners
  • Who does not sit in the seat of scoffers

This blessed man…
  • Delights in the the law of the Lord
  • Meditates on His law day and night

This blessed man…
  • Is like a tree
    • Firmly planted by streams of water
    • Yields its fruit in its season
    • Does not wither
    • Prospers in whatever He does

Because he delights in the Lord.
Because he trust in the Lord to bring fruit.

May be bear the fruit of the Lord.
