Wisdom from Psalm 16

Solomon learned something that all of us would be wise to learn too, and hopefully we'll learn it earlier than Solomon. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

"You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing." Psalm 16:2

Solomon, the wisest man on earth (1 Kings 4:30), wasted most of his life on extravagant wealth, pleasure, women, and worldly honor (1 King 11) before discovering the truth of Psalm 16:2.

"I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure. My heart took delight in all my labor, and this was the reward for all my toil. Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun. " Ecclesiastes 2:10-11

Our lives are full of many good things, but without the Lord's presence, they're all meaningless. 

Let's take time today to add meaning to everything we do. Like the Psalmist may we say: "I keep my eyes always on the LORD." Psalm 16:8
