The Psalmist provides a concise formula for a prosperous life.

Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way sinners take . . . but whose delight in in the law of the Lord and who meditates on His law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by the streams of water . . . whatever they do prospers. (NIV)

In poetic language, the Psalmist David, lays out a life-style for success! A thriving life makes wise choices: some things they will do and others they will not.  Don’t be passive:  instead intentionally determine to live life God’s way.

In the Bible when it a statement begins with “Blessed”, what it really means is . . . “Happy”.   The result of making a firm decision to follow this pattern is — consistent staying power and joyous productivity. In short, a life of impact!
