The Doorpost: What's your 'one thing'?
Ray King · Jan 31, 2017
One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in His temple.
What is your “one thing”? What do you care about more than anything else? What is it that you won’t give up, even if you miss out on other things? The verse above indicates that David’s “one thing” was his relationship with God.
There are many things in life we can seek. There are many things we can ask from God. We can seek success, safety, comfort, or pleasure. We can seek power, wealth, and prestige. We can desire to do great works of service. None of these things are worth as much as intimate fellowship with God.
Make sure that the pressures, cares, and distractions of life, even the good things, don’t crowd out the “one thing” that is the most important. Seek Him above all else. He is the only One Who is worth it!
