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 …

Psalm 84: 

1Better 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.
