Two Pathways Song (Psalm 1)
Good & Evil – two paths, pit & flame, cloud & crown – Every person must choose a path. We can choose God and prosper, or we can choose evil and be destroyed.
Fruitful Rewards – river, tree, fruit basket – Whenever I desire good, I seek God. I meditate on his Word every day. He blesses me, and my reward is an abundant life.
Merciless Master – serpent, chains, slave – When I desire evil, I follow Satan. I rebel against God, and I cause pain to others. The devil is a terrible master.
Choose Wisely – bonfire, wind, dust – God will judge everyone for what path they chose. The righteous will be with God forever, and the wicked will be sent away.
- Can we really simplify all human life into two paths?
- Make a list of the joys that the righteous experience.
- Give examples of how a righteous person can be successfully tempted into altering their chosen path.
- Give examples of how a wicked person can discover that they’ve made a huge mistake and return to God.
- What types of fruit are the riverbank trees bearing?
- Compare Psalm 1 to Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:25-34. How does it feel to be set free from evil?
