That man hath perfect blessedness
who walketh not astray
In counsel of ungodly men,
nor stands in sinners' way,
Nor sitteth in the scorner's chair:
But placeth his delight
Upon God's law, and meditates
on his law day and night.
I wanted to include an audio or video link, but I could only find this sung to a different tune than we use or in Gaelic. (Gaelic is a beautiful language but I don't understand 99% of it!) We are accustomed to singing acapella. We do not use musical instruments at our breaking of bread meeting or our Bible study. There is something wonderful about the sound of unaccompanied human voices singing as a group. Some sing very well and some not so well, but the combined sound is quite nice. "Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise." Psalm 98.4
This psalm is what the life of a Christian should look like: steering clear of the lifestyle of the ungodly and approval of their sin and living a life of purity before God The Christian should not be rationalising or justifying his/her wrong behaviour but making their life line up to what God says in His Word - the Bible. That must always be the final authority.
