Focused on the Right Things | Dr. Zach Crook
Psalm 1:1-6

1. Focus on God’s Word
A. Parallelism is the heart of Hebrew poetry
1. He doesn’t walk, or stand, or sit
2. We get the clear idea that we avoid sin!
B. We find true satisfaction when our delight is in Scripture instead of sin!

2. Focus on Bearing Fruit
A. The metaphor of a tree is intentional
1. In Proverbs 3:18, a tree is a metaphor for wisdom
B. In this passage, the idea of prospering is not tied to anything material, it is
associated with bearing biblical fruit
1. Our display of the fruit of the Spirit is evidence of our love for God

3. Focus on your Future
A. The truth is that judgment is coming
1. The wicked will perish
2. Without Christ, we are all in that camp!
B. We can be assured that God intimately knows everyone who has trusted in Christ
C. All who trust in Christ will be eternally blessed
