Oh, the joys of those who do not
    follow the advice of the wicked,
    or stand around with sinners,
    or join in with mockers.
  But they delight in the law of the LORD,
    meditating on it day and night.
  They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
    bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
    and they prosper in all they do.

  But not the wicked!
    They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
  They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
    Sinners will have no place among the godly.
  For the LORD watches over the path of the godly,
    but the path of the wicked leads to destruction…

Praise the LORD!

Praise God in His sanctuary;
    praise Him in His mighty heaven!
  Praise Him for His mighty works;
    praise His unequaled greatness!
  Praise Him with a blast of the ram’s horn;
    praise Him with the lyre and harp!
  Praise Him with the tambourine and dancing;
    praise Him with strings and flutes!
  Praise Him with a clash of cymbals;
    praise Him with loud clanging cymbals.
  Let everything that breathes sing praises to the LORD!

Praise the LORD!

 

THOUGHT FOR TODAY


From Psalm 100, 101 (NLT)…

Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth!
     Worship the LORD with gladness.
    Come before Him, singing with joy.
 Acknowledge that the LORD is God!
    He made us, and we are His.
    We are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
 Enter His gates with thanksgiving;
    go into His courts with praise.
    Give thanks to Him and praise His name.
  For the LORD is good.
    His unfailing love continues forever,
    and His faithfulness continues to each generation…

I will sing of Your love and justice, LORD.
    I will praise You with songs.
  I will be careful to live a blameless life—
    when will You come to help me?
I will lead a life of integrity
    in my own home.
  I will refuse to look at
    anything vile and vulgar.
I hate all who deal crookedly;
    I will have nothing to do with them.
  I will reject perverse ideas
    and stay away from every evil.
  I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbors.
    I will not endure conceit and pride.

  I will search for faithful people
    to be my companions.
Only those who are above reproach
    will be allowed to serve me.
I will not allow deceivers to serve in my house,
    and liars will not stay in my presence.
  My daily task will be to ferret out the wicked
    and free the city of the LORD from their grip.
