UpLift: In The NIV version of the Holy Bible in Psalms ch1:1 it reads. “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers”.
What I have taken from this passage is this. You can’t expect God to give you a blessed life if you want to do things your way. God gave us the manuscript on how to live in the bible, and blessed are the one’s who follow this manuscript . Took me a long time to under that’s in a literal way of speaking.
