"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night." Psalm 1:1,2

The way we live our life is often referred to as a "walk." When we tell people we are Christians, they don't want to hear us simply "talk the talk," they want us to prove it by "walking the walk." Another way you might hear it put is, "Don't sing it, bring it!" This is nothing different than the Lord expects of us.

If we want to live out the life we profess, we must avoid ungodly counsel and philosophies that are contrary to God's ways as revealed in the Holy Scriptures. We determine to live a life of holiness and find delight in obedience to the Lord. When we do this, we discover that our walk lines up with our talk, and our lifestyle doesn't conflict with our profession. As a result, our lives are fruitful and prosperous to the glory of God.

Lord, we want our lives to be fruitful in a way that brings glory to you. Keep us from places we shouldn't go - in our minds as well as in our persons, from submitting to ideas that conflict with yours, and from the negativity that seems to assault our faith from so many directions. In your Word we find life and refreshing; cause us to not only go there often, but to bring it with us in our hearts and in our minds. Lord, we long to be fruitful, we desire to be blessed by you. Amen.
