Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. This number of Psalm takes a distinctive look at the two kinds of people in the world, providing the character traits by each type.The righteous delight themselves in the laws, ways, and character traits of God as He is our heavenly Father. God, the Father is love, compassionate, longsuffering, He is kind and merciful, God is truth, and faithful to His word; therefore, the righteous emulate these attributes daily in our lives. Whereas, the unrighteous bring forth hate, envy, deceit, bigotry, and all manner of evil upon our fellowman for no apparent reason. These are the attributes of the prince of darkness.Let me encourage the righteous do not be discouraged by the seeming prosperity of the unrighteous because they will be soon cut down like the chaff that will be blown away. We will look for the unrighteous, and they will be no more (v.4), while the righteous will flourish like a tree that is planted by the rivers of water (v.3). The river of water is the Holy Spirit that showers all believers with His grace daily.
The righteous enjoy bountiful blessings while blessings of the unrighteous are short-lived.
