Blessed Generation

  1. 1. Introduction: • In this Psalm we can learn much about the Lord and His dealings with His people. • It is encouraging to examine the word of God and see if we have tasted and seen that the Lord is good to His own. • As we study, let us seek to develop the heart, the good character and deeds, and share in the great life that God has called to live. • Let us also examine ourselves to see if we are living like the blessed generation should live according to God’s word.
