A lesson from Psalms...

I was reading a devotion the other day about Solomon and his request to the Lord for wisdom and this devotion challenged me to think about what ONE THING I would ask of the Lord...
  • money & riches to fulfill all my dreams
  • more time to be with my family
  • more money/time to travel with my hubby more!!! :)
  • be a better teacher/preacher in DJH and beyond (and to teach more)
But as I thought about it - none of this really matters!!
They are all very important to me and things that I pray regularly, but not the most important.

Here's what I found next...
Psalm 27:4
"One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to seek Him in His temple."

Nothing matters more than to know Him.

I love my kids - but someday they're going to get married and leave the house - what then?
I could have all the money in the world - but would it make me love Him more?

All I need is you Lord...
