The First Step To Long Lasting Success (Psalm 1)

All over the internet, many people, including leaders from different works of life have presented their own steps to success. All these steps can be quite effective when we apply them, but there is a first step to all these things.


I am not concerned about growing so fast and getting to the top, I am much more concerned about growing correctly before getting to the top. Those who are in a haste to get to the top will surely get there but they will never last because they were not patient enough to build up gradually and adequately. They will only enjoy fame for a little while and they will be blown away like chaff and only those who sat down and enjoyed the process will reign from generation to generation even when they're no more in their mortal bodies.

WHAT IS THIS MAJOR STEP?

The Bible made it clear to us in the first book of Psalm.
Those who have walked through that route and are living by these principles in that Chapter of the Bible are still amongst us and making impact from one generation to another.

PSALM 1

+ THE PRINCIPLE


1 Oh, the joys of those who do not

follow the advice of the wicked,

or stand around with sinners,

or join in with mockers.

2 But they delight in the law of the LORD,

meditating on it day and night.


+ RESULTS WHEN THE PRINCIPLE IS APPLIED


3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,

bearing fruit each season.

Their leaves never wither,

and they prosper in all they do.


+ CONSEQUENCES  IF NEGLECTED 


4 But not the wicked!

They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.

5 They will be condemned at the time of judgment.

Sinners will have no place among the godly.

6 For the LORD watches over the path of the godly,

but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.

Friends, if you really want to build something that will last, then apply this principle to whatever you're pursuing and to what ever your purpose is in life. 

Put God first and enjoy the process.
