You’d think the first words might have been, “Obedient is the man…” or “Righteous is the man….” It’s awesome that God’s great desire is to bless us! But what does it mean to be blessed? Blessedness describes the life of happiness, delight, and fruitfulness that comes to those who walk in God’s ways. We’ll begin 2023 by learning how Psalm 1 teaches us how to have a blessed New Year!
