The Delight of Your Life (Psalm 1)

What is your favorite dessert? What is it about this dessert that makes it so great?

As a group, read Psalm 1. Make a list of things that a "blessed" person will do, and a list of the things a "wicked" person will do.

Verse one encourages us to avoid the "counsel" of the wicked. How would you describe the counsel we receive from the media (movies, television, music, internet, etc.)?

How can someone avoid "walking in the counsel of the wicked?"

How do you think a Christian can avoid standing in the way of sinners and sitting in the seat of mockers, but still be a witness for Jesus in the world? Read Matthew 5:14-16 and 1 Peter 2:11-12. How do these passages relate to this question?

What do you think about when you hear the word "delight"? What are the delights in your life?

Describe what it would look like if the Word of God was the delight of your life.

Give an example of how someone might meditate on the Word of God "day and night".

What is the fruit that results from meditating on God's Word?

How should your relationship with the Word of God impact your relationships with other people (particularly the wicked, sinners, and mockers)?

After looking at this Psalm, what is one specific action you need to take regarding your relationship to the Word of God?
