“One day spent in your Temple is better than a thousand anywhere else; I would rather stand at the gate of the house of my God than live in the homes of the wicked.”
“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. 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. LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.”
As great are some of the places we can visit, or the experiences we can have on earth, even a thousand of those cannot compare to one day in God’s presence! He grants us favor in the eyes of others and holds back no good thing from those whose hearts fully seek Him! May He grant us the grace to fully grasp and experience the richness of these truths!
