Bible Story:

Psalm 1:1-6

When a person learns God’s Word and uses it in their lives, they experience real joy and happiness. Knowing God’s Word helps us know who God is, how to live for Him, and how to obey Him. Our paths are made straight when we know God’s Word.


God Is Truth – God Gives His Word

“God is” means that there is only one god in the universe. He alone is Lord over everything that exists, and He alone is worthy of our worship. This also means that every good thing that exists comes from God. All good things come from Him because goodness is a part of who He is as the one true God. It is a part of His nature and character to be good, and everything that comes from God is good. Thankfully God has not chosen to withhold His goodness from His creation, but instead gives it freely to us.
