Two Ways to Live - Prayers - ScoutHelp

Psalm One, New Century Version

Happy are those who don't listen to the wicked, who don't go where sinners go, who don't do what evil people do.

They love the Lord's teachings, and they think about those teachings day and night.

They are strong, like a tree planted by a river.

But wicked people are not like that. They are like chaff that the wind blows away.

The Lord takes care of his people, but the wicked will be destroyed.

I think this Psalm helps us all but mainly teenagers. It talks of peer pressure and how we shouldn't cave in just because other people say we should do something.

As Scouts we should stand out from the crowd as people who do what is right.

We should be careful not to fall into the trap of always doing things because they make us popular those things may not be right and they may harm ourselves or other people.

It is important that we think about the consequences before acting, then we should always do what is right rather than ending up as what the Bible calls wicked.

This is hard though, so it is important that we help each other in our decision making, helping us develop as the best people we can be.
