Psalm One says that a “blessed” person is one who does NOT walk, stand, or sit in the way of sinners. The blessed person delights in and meditates on God’s Word day and night. But, what is a blessed person like? Verse three says, “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” I remember my Grandfather’s farm in Marion County, Tennessee. “Poppa” grew much food on “bottom-land” along the Sequatchie River. Trees along the riverbank were strong and healthy. Their roots grew deep in good soil with plenty of water from the river. Their leaves did not dry up or “wither.” During hot summers, those trees stayed fresh and green. Everything growing by the river grew well.
You should be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. You should  avoid sin,  love the Bible, and  meditate on the Bible. You can know what it means to be a “blessed” person. Psalm One says “whatsoever” the blessed person does “shall prosper.” By avoiding sin, you avoid many problems and much sadness. By loving the Bible and meditating on it, you make wise choices that bring success to your life, marriage and family. You and your family can be blessed. God blesses wise choices! He makes obedient people to be like trees planted by rivers of water.
This Is What It is Like to be a Blessed Person!
