No Good Thing
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
“You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” Is that the way you feel today? Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in the events, unresolved situations, pressing calendar, difficult physical or interpersonal circumstances that we can easily lose track of the “good things” with which we are surrounded.
I have often quoted C.S. Lewis’ comment, “Never live for things that will die when you do.” Of those pressing things in your life as you read this, which ones will be around a month from now? …a year from now? …this weekend? All of those concerns will eventually pass away. The Lord will never pass away. He is the only “good thing” we have. Are you enjoying His presence this day? He is the only truly “good thing” you have. When He is not your Lord, it’s a whole different story.
