In Psalm 73 the psalmist proclaims that “the nearness of God is my good”. He comes to this realization after he has considered what the world has to offer. He realizes the foolishness of looking at life and valuing it the way the world does. He even goes so far as to say that he was a senseless and ignorant beast to be attracted by the world’s treasures.
This Lord’s Day, what is your good? Would your children say that you live as if the nearness of God is your good? May you and I repent and weep and then seek the mercy and grace of God so that he alone is our good and our refuge.
