No Other Good

It is pretty clear that I use the same devotional track each year... I wrote about this on this date last year as well, but this is a slightly different take...
No Other Good
What is on your wish list?  Better car?  Better house?  Better church?  Better schools?  What do you consider to be good?  A certain brand of clothes?  One political party over the other?  Your team winning it all?

I have lists like that.  Not necessarily written down, but they are there just the same.

Psalm 16:2 squashes that notion for me.  The second half of the verse, “I have no other good besides You.”

No other good – includes things like marriage, family, ministry, job, big screen TV, fill in the blank… No other good – zip, zero, nada…  Just Him.

I cannot honestly say that is the case with me.  How about you.

  1. Not at all true of me; having just lost the most precious thing in my life other than God, I am seeing the draw to placing my deepest desires in her. Without her I feel one third of what I was. God told Ezekiel (24:16) "...behold, I am about to take from you the desire of your eyes with a blow; but you shall not mourn, and you shall not weep, and your tears shall not come." I can't relate to it at all; I have wept; I mourn, my tears flow often. But Ezekiel considered God a greater good than the "desire of his eyes." What will God do in my relationship to Him? I have many painful questions....
