Godly Relationships - Psalm 1:1

God wants you blessed as His child. Consequently, His desire is to see you form and keep godly relationships. This desire is clearly captured in Psalm1:1 - “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.”  The relationship that is approved of God is the one established with His saints. As we can see in Psalm 1:1, other relationships will create friction with God and bring curses. Unapproved relation [...]
