I don’t know about you, but I love the beach. The sand and surf, all the blues and the greens, the exquisite light and the warmth of the sun. The restorative power is phenomenal. Yet, even knowing all that, we know the real truth. The truth that even one day in your courts, is better than a thousand elsewhere. That’s right, the Courts of God are better than anywhere else in the world. Even better than any Greek Island beaches or any other splendid place in the world.
Psalm 84:10-11 MSG
“One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches. I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. All sunshine and sovereign is GOD, generous in gifts and glory.”
Our all sunshine and sovereign God is generous in gifts and glory. Just to stand at the doorway is plenty, scrubbing floors would be enough, yet our God is generous. Our God invites us into His house as treasured children. Oh yes! Our generous all Sonshine and Sovereign God is the very best. Better is one day in His House than a thousand elsewhere.
