One Delight

Put your trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and feed on its riches. Psalm 37:1-18  Look around. Has not the earth provided? Was it not freely given; from the smallest of molecules to the tallest of plant-life and the largest of formations? God has placed us here and we’ve not disappointed in our ability to use such a gift to create and delight in the tools we use for our own pleasures. Yet there is one delight we often forget; our delight in the giver’s gift of the spirit within. Let not the spirit within be persuaded by the tools of pleasures made from our own hands. We must delight our selves in the one who was first to give the gift of the spirit that dwells within us and yearns jealously to be reconciled with that gift (James 4:5). All other delights wither like the grass and fade away.
