I try never to use the same scripture too close together but today I need to make an exception for a testimony. Yesterday I sent out a devotion:
Psalms 1: 1 NASB “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the council of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers.”
About 20 years ago I was in a construction job and a man was using foul language, He saw me and knew I was a minister and apologized. Then I said something stupid, I said I’ve heard that kind of language do long I’m used to it. Here’s the problem: ‘blessed is the man who walks not in the council of the wicked” (Gets comfortable with bad company) “nor stands in the path of sinners” (choose to stay in bad company knowing that it doesn’t please God) “Nor sit in the seat of scoffers” (finally just settles in intentionally with slanderers and becomes part of the problem instead of being the exception.) We get too comfortable with this world, and this is not our home!!!!
