On a day I was supposed to read Psalm 76 for the Bible study I am teaching, I inadvertently read Psalm 73 instead.
Now I know why.
Psalm 73:25b stopped me: And earth has nothing I desire besides You.
Man. Earth has nothing.
That’ll probably be a sermon series one day.
In the meantime, it helps me realize . . .
- Earth has nothing compared to God’s promises.
- Earth has nothing compared to what awaits me in life after life.
- Earth has nothing that will keep me content over the long haul.
- Earth has nothing that can satisfy my deepest longings.
- Earth has nothing that will ultimately make me feel at home.
- Earth has nothing because heaven has everything.
