or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night”.
- Put aside the counsel of wicked people. Don’t live according to their way of living, don’t try to imitate them. If the world is wearing a hat, you don’t also have to wear a hat. E.g. this person used his cellphone to read a bible so that others won’t know he was reading the bible. Sometimes we try to look like them, to fit ourselves in their lives. God says if you are ashamed of me, then I was also be ashamed of you.
- Don’t stand in the way of the way of sinners. We should not live like them. E.g. some will tell you that they are going to nightclubs to make lots of friends so they can bring them to Jesus but while there they drink they slowly, slowly lose their salvation. Be far away from danger. Joseph ran far away from Potiphar’s wife. There were many advantages for Joseph if had accepted that women plus she was attractive but he saw the danger and ran.
- Don’t sit in the seat of scoffers. Scoffers are people that are just different when they make a decision. For eg, I use to write comments on-line. Some people’s comments are not good such as “go to hell” and their message is bitter for no reason. E.g. Saul wanted to kill David for no reason. These people have negative thoughts with no intelligence. Scoffers don’t accept other people’s point of views, you are wrong no matter what you say. These kinds of people only talk negatively about others. We have people in our communities like that, full of bitterness and destroying wherever they go. We should avoid these people. Ange can tell you she has a problem with Annette and in comes peter and tells ange negative words about Annette. We should avoid those kinds of people.
