Blessed beyond understanding is the man or woman, boy or girl who resolutely refuses to walk the way of the world, whose ears are closed to the suggestions of fools, and who won’t sit down as long as there is a stand to be taken anywhere…
And not so much because such resistance has saving merit of it’s own,
but because such resistance is prerequisite to finding one’s delight in the Words of God.
One cannot have the mind both to joyfully meditate, and jovially meddle with foolishness at the same time.
No more than one can be both a tree planted by rivers of waters, and chaff driven away on the wings of the wind.
You are what you love.
“…His leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

What did you mean by "One cannot have the mind both to joyfully meditate, and jovially meddle with foolishness at the same time"? Do you mean joyfully meditate on God's Word, or… ?

Exactly. An appetite for the Word, an an appetite for the world can't coexist.
