Psalm 16: Apart From God I Have No Good Thing

Psalm 16, All good things come from God
Life is meaningless apart from God..
.
"Apart from you I have no good thing...all the good things I have come from you..without you, nothing makes sense." 
~ Psalm 16:2 (NIV,GNT,MSG) 

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
