What a stunning morning it is here in Wanganui to start July. The sun is shining from a cloudless sky, there's barely a breath of wind, and it's a great day to be alive!
But today's song choice puts all that in perspective. Psalm 84 says:
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. Psalm 84:10-12 (The Message)
And Matt Redman, one of our favourite worship leaders and songwriters has put that thought to music:
Have a great day today, and may it be a foretaste of what's in store when we reach eternity!
