Psalm 詩篇 1
Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
詩篇 1:1 不從惡人的計謀，不站罪人的道路，不坐傲慢人的座位，
What is true happiness? The Declaration of Independence lists “the pursuit of Happiness” as one of the “unalienable Rights” endowed to us by our Creator. But how should we pursue happiness, and where will we find it? Psalm 1 gives us a clear road map and the way to obtain it: it will be found by delighting in the law of the Lord and by meditating on it day and night. True happiness is long-lasting, “like a tree planted by streams of water” and not “like chaff that the wind drives away.” True happiness comes from within, just like a tree yields its fruit which develops from the inside out and not from the outside “protective coloration” in (“You Are Not Really Happy” – Mayday) . Most importantly, true happiness bring us to a close and intimate relationship (the Hebrew meaning of “know”) with God. May we pursue true happiness from the Word of God and become a blessed person!
什麼是真正的“快樂”？ 獨立宣言將“追求“快樂”「幸福」”列為創造者賦予我們的“不可剝奪的權利”之一。 但是，我們應該如何追求“快樂”呢？在哪裡找到“快樂”呢？ 詩篇第1篇為我們提供了清晰的路線圖和獲取的方法：“惟喜愛耶和華的律法，晝夜思想他的律法”來找到它。 真正的“快樂”是持久的，“就像一棵樹栽在溪水旁”，而不是“像糠粃被風吹散”。 真正的幸福來自內心，就像一棵樹產生的果實一樣，它是由內而外發展的，而不是外在的”保護色“（“你不是真正的快樂, 你的笑只是你穿的保護色” 五月天）。 最重要的是，真正的“快樂”使我們與上帝建立了親密的關係（希伯來語為“知道”）。 願我們從上帝的話語中尋求真正的“快樂”，並成為有福的人！
