A Study in the Psalms - A Godly Man - Psalm 1

We live in an age when the biblical view of manhood and fatherhood is ignored, ridiculed, and rejected. Psalm 1 offers us God's blueprint, His "How to Guide" on not only being a Godly man, but on staying a Godly man. A powerful contrast is given between the Godly and the Ungodly man. Few passages of scripture offer such sharp and concise wisdom on surviving and thriving in the wicked world around us.
