Psalms 1-3; Ephesians 2

Psalms 1:1-2

Blessed is the man who does not walk

in the counsel of the wicked,

Nor stand in the way of sinners,

nor sit in company with scoffers.

Rather, the law of the LORD is his joy;

and on his law he meditates day and night.

One of the prevailing lies in our culture is that sinful behavior is true freedom; the truth is sin is slavery.  The law of the Lord is and a love for it is true freedom, a true source of joy.  I’m thinking of that Billy Joel lyric from “Only the Good Die Young”:

I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. The sinners have much more fun…

The fruits of all that “fun”: disease, broken families, the full scope of human misery.  And when you meditate upon our eternal Home, if you are good and worthy of it then what’s so bad about dying young?  Just saying.

God bless, and Happy Father’s Day!
