Like a tree planted by streams of water (Growing Deeper with Psalm 1)

Psalm 1 is sometimes called the “gateway to the psalms.” It stands with arms outstretched over the following 149 psalms.

It is a psalm of wisdom which outlines the path of righteousness verses the path of wickedness. One is to be pursued (even if we are deeply flawed), and the other is to be avoided. As James Mays says, “Life is at stake.”

The Pulse Podcast is about living abundantly wholeheartedly. It includes different kinds of content: Interviews, featured topics, or biblical studies. This episode is the later—and in-depth look at Psalm 1.

I provide an introduction to the psalms as a whole, and take us through the text providing context and background.


The sermon connected to this same section of text is called “The Two Ways” and can be accessed here.”
