Daily Bread – September 20, 2023 (The Fourth Day – Genesis 1:14-19) Psalms 1:1 – Happy is that man who walks not in the council of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the sessions of the scorners. A “scorner” is: Someone who is proud and haughty (Proverbs 21:24) One who will hate you for correction (Proverbs 9:8, 15:12) One who cannot hear correction (Proverbs 13:1) One who cannot receive grace (Proverbs 3:34) One who cannot find wisdom even if they seek it (Proverbs 14:6) Those who we are suppose to punish (Proverbs 19:25, 21:11) Is the cause of strife and contention (Proverbs 22:10) They are the proud that God opposes in (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:6) The wicked are characterized by several attributes of scorning: jealousy, malice, envy, strife, and gossip (Romans 1:29; Galatians 5:19-21; 2 Corinthians 12:20; 1 Timothy 5:13-14) Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
