With whom are you traveling? With whom are you associating? With whom are you spending your time? It matters. Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of the wicked. Happy are they who do not walk with those who do nothing but gripe and complain. Happy are they who do not linger with "energy vampires"(hat-tip to Jon Gordon for that term). Keep your positive energy, keep your spirits high. The journey is long, the pilgrimage to see the Lord is also best spent if you allow God to be with you along the way. Happy are we if we keep counsel with the good, if we plant ourselves by streams of living water, if we allow good fruit to be produced in our lives. Prosperity and happiness, true prosperity and true happiness will be with us if we stick to the good.
1Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of
the wicked, *
nor lingered in the way of sinners,
nor sat in the seats of the scornful!
2Their delight is in the law of the LORD, *
and they meditate on his law day and night.
3They are like trees planted by streams of water,
bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither; *
everything they do shall prosper.
