Lenten Lesson — Week 5



Again this week, as I have for all the other Lenten lessons, I am refraining from comment on the scriptures. I just want to share them and let the Lord speak to your hearts and bless you with what He has to say. The passages this week come from Psalm 1 and Psalm 2.


Why are the nations in an uproar,
And the people’s devising a vain thing?
The kings of the earth take their stand,
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and against His Anointed:
He who sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.
Now therefore, O kings, show discernment:
Take warning, O judges of the earth.
Worship the Lord with reverence,
And rejoice with trembling.”


How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of the sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
And he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season,
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.”
