The word 'success' is one of the most used, misused, and mis-abused words in our language. What the world calls success is not necessarily success. There are two kinds of successes--that which dies with a person, and that which outlives a person. Psalm 1, the very first Psalm and the very first song in the Book of Psalms, helps us understand what real success is, and what a real future is. This psalm tells us how to approach tomorrow. How to make sure if indeed we do live to see another day, we can ensure that tomorrow can be truly successful.
"When a person is planted in the truth of God’s Word and has chosen to abide by what God says, he will not have to read the latest public opinion poll or put his finger to the wind to know what he believes. When you stand on the Word of God, it doesn’t matter what anybody else says or what everybody else believes. Righteous people are not guided by polls, by pundits, or by the public. They are guided by principles based on the Word of God." --Dr. Merritt
