Psalm 1 gives a clear description of a blessed life. The psalmist decribes the blessed person as one who is like a tree that has an inexhaistible supply of water. This results in a life that continually bears good fruit and success.
Can you picture a life giving tree that always bears fruit in its season? Apples & pears; figs and berries - A life giving source to those around it. What a fantastic picture of a blessed life!
A blessed life is a life that enables, encorages and refreshes other lives. A blessed life is one that is a constant source of blessing to others.
It isn't a life that is preoccupied with its own needs and desires. It is preoccupied with being healthy with the intention of being a source of health for others. It is a person that is securely planted by a stream of life giving water.
I know of no other stream of life giving water that is more reliable or more available than the one found in life of Christ. Jesus said that anyone who goes to Him will receive life giving water. (John 4:14) Christ is the source of eternal life giving water.
I want to live a blessed life as described here in Psalm 1; a life that bears good fruit and is securely planted by Christ's life giving stream. You probably do too ...
