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,
but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers. Psalm 1.1-3
Delight - a feeling of extreme pleasure or satisfaction; to be held spellbound.
Day and Night - Pretty much all the time.
Planted - Deeply rooted; firmly fixed or held
In Season - When the time comes, no earlier-no later; God's perfect timing.
God is the source of all strength. It's a law of nature just like gravity. Ignore it at your own peril. When we fully appreciate this fact - and structure our lives accordingly - we stand a good, solid chance of avoiding burnout in ministry leadership.
