"For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly."
This is a fun scripture that I found today. :) It's cool in talking about what is really important. one day with God is better than a thousand without... that it is better to be working in a cubicle in the business of the Lord than to have your own office with a window, a company car, and your own parking space in the company of Evil. :) God is the light that we walk by every day, and our protector when things get scary. he will give us anything, he *wants* to bring us up to his level. Those are all amazing things, and ones that you seem to find rarely in our earthly society. I was at class last night, and one of the women in my group said that she was reading a book about change management... and in the book was the question, "what would you do if you weren't scared?" What a great question. If God is our shield, and we'd rather be a doorman in his service than to be rich and live in luxury... then, really... what do we have to be afraid of?
