Psalm 1
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

From the King James Version

Draw a picture of a tree planted by water to remind you of the godly person in this psalm. On the same paper, write a short paragraph about how you would like to be like this person.

[Note to parents: Are there any scientific facts about trees planted near water that you might integrate into a discussion with your child about this psalm? Does your child know what "chaff" is? Could you explain this and how it applies to the ungodly?]
