Psalms 1 - Introduction
Over the years, I have done many series on some of the greatest passages of the Bible. We’ve looked at The Ten Commandments, The 23rd Psalm, The Lord’s Prayer, The Beatitudes and a handful of others. There is so much in some of those great passages that it’s really enlightening to go through them with a fine-toothed comb.

Psalms 1 is important, not just because it is the very first chapter of the largest book of the Bible, but it also gives us a step by step process of how to live a life that God will bless. That sounds important to me. Don’t you agree?
Starting tomorrow, let’s start down that road together. It will take a while so don’t think that we’ll be on to something else in a few days. I want to milk this one for everything it’s got. It is a gold mine and we don’t want to miss out on anything it has to offer us.
Take some time to read it tonight and get yourself prepared for the journey. It’s only 6 verses but they sure are powerful.
