| Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. – Psalm 1:1-2 |
Don’t walk with bad people, don’t stand with bad people, don’t sit around with bad people. Don’t follow what they do, don’t look for where they are going, don’t seek out their company.
OK, that was rather straight forward. If we want to avoid evil, then… we avoid evil. The way to do this is to find enjoyment in doing what is good. We are loved by God and we should be excited about that. If we constantly consider that — how much He loves us — we will overflow with the joy of serving Him. When we are filled with that kind of contentment, we will walk, stand and sit in our Father’s presence. We will follow His ways, and no other. He loves us, and we are blessed.
