10/14/19: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17, Psalm 84:1-12; Proverbs 25:15
So, how much do you really desire to be in the presence of the Lord?
Is it as much as the Psalmist describes in the following — one day versus a thousand elsewhere? — being a servant versus living in luxury? These comparisons humble me …
10 Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
