Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. –Robert Frost
Frost talked about two roads. The Psalmist talked about two realities: a tree and chaff. Personalize this as a prayer. Put your name in the blanks:
Blessed is _____________ who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his (or her) delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he (or she) meditates day and night. ___________ is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that __________ does, he prospers. (Psalm 1:1-3)
If you do not know Christ, or if you’re living your life by your plan, not God’s, fill your name in these blanks:
The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore _________________ will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; for the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of ___________ will perish. (Psalm 1:4-6 ESV)
Will you take the road less traveled by?
