A person who does not hear evil is blessed.
Keeping you mind clean is a virtue,
Since even thinking sinful thoughts is sinful.
So don’t even listen to sinful things;
“Stay away from slippery places” [AA];
Stay away from temptations.
Read Scripture and
“Think about these things.”
Meditate, think, ponder.
Living with an uplifted mind
Is like living on Lucas Creek:
Abundant life and beauty,
Which is the only wealth that matters.
Choose your fellowship carefully
And don’t waste time.
God Himself is with you
And guides you.
Eventually evil will fade away.
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the
Counsel of the wicked
Or stand in the way of sinners
Or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the Law of the LORD
And on His Law he meditates
Day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in season
And whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
That the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.
