Hey guys… So the sites been a bit quiet the last few weeks and I’m really sorry about that, life just takes over sometimes and it’s something that I want to get better at doing. Anyway, back to the reason your reading this. The verse for this month is from Psalm 84v10 and it says:
“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.”
It kinda seems weird when you first read it and at first I had to read it a couple of times for it to sink in properly. But then you think about it and you say yes I would rather spend one day with God than a thousand here, no matter how great it feels here on earth because God is always better, heaven is always better.
Imagine being a doorkeeper, at say a music festival for example. You stand at the outside, possibly in the freezing cold and you have to put up with drunks, people swearing at you, people with fake tickets trying to blab their way in. But at the end of the day you sit back and realise what great music you’ve had the privilege of listening to all day. And that’s what the second part of this verse is talking about, if you spend a life living with God, your seeing all the great things that he does, just from the outside. And the best thing about that? It makes it all the more special when you get in.
