Who is the one that is blessed? Psalm 1 states Blessed is the one who sits not in the seat of the scornful. Thesaurus lists the words “humble” and “meek” as antonyms to the word “scornful. Who is the one who sits not in the seat of the scornful? It is he/she that sits in the seat of the humble. In other words, “Blessed is the one who sits in the seat of the humble.” The humble are those who have the very mind of Jesus Christ, who being God, thought that it was not right to be made equal with God and so humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even death on the Cross (Philippians 2:5-8).
Points to ponder:
Are you seated with the mind of Jesus Christ, obedient with all humility? Are you blessed in the seat you sit …? Blessed is he/she who sits in the seat of the humble.
Psalm 1:1 (KJV)
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.
