Psalm 1:1  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 4
Blessed is the man that walketh not  .  .  .  nor standeth  .  .  .  nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Abraham’s nephew Lot, in the story of his life in Genesis, quit farming to live in the city of Sodom. He eventually became a judge. His counsel was respected - until he warned his sons-in-law of the coming judgment of God on the city. Then they laughed at him. As long as our counsel goes along with what people want to hear, they’ll listen. But bring up the Bible and the Lord and they turn off. Lot’s witness for God was spoiled because he joined politically with the world. Christianity and politics don’t mix.
