Winning Is Everything!

Psalm 19, Bible treasure versus worldly treasure
Have you ever seen the Publisher Clearing House TV ads where an unsuspecting person opens their front door and receives a check for a million dollars?

Makes you want to buy a subscription, but the odds of winning are miniscule. 

I thought about this when I read Psalm 19 the other day. The Psalmist says God’s perfect commands are more desirable than fine gold.

And they offer some pretty fantastic "prizes." 
They:
  • Revive the soul
  • Make us wise
  • Give us insight
  • Warn us of harm
I don’t know about you, but those are prizes I need daily. And the best part is the way we win them. Instead of waiting for someone to knock on our door with a million dollar check, we can knock on God’s door anytime.

Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. Proverbs 8:34
