Psalm 1 written in the style of wisdom literature, serves as an introduction to the Psalms as a whole, along with Psalm 2. Psalm 1 shows the benefit to the individual of a deep, reflective and lived out relationship with the word of God (the law). Psalm 2 shows that there is something very personal about all of this, and that we need to make our peace with “the Lord’s anointed”. Psalm 1 shows consequences of individual obedience and disobedience to the word and Psalm 2 shows it at a national level.
FRESH READ – 2008, our read through the Bible program continues. At the mid point, the Psalms readings re set to Psalm 1. We will be preaching on Psalms during the summer.
