More Than Bread Devotional for 9/14/11

10For a day in your courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.   – Psalm 84:10

There is a modern praise chorus based on this verse, and I would guess that many of us have sang it before.  I wonder how much of the time our lives show this to be true.  It sometimes feels as though we spend a thousand days elsewhere for every day we truly give to the worship and service of God.  It is so easy for life to get in the way and consume the time we want to spend in worship and service to our King.  Take more than just a moment or two to dwell in His presence today.
