These psalmists knew that spending time in the presence of the Lord was time better spent than doing anything else. Do we also believe that? They knew that there was true value in being a faithful follower of the Lord, even if it meant just standing at the Temple door as a servant. Do we agree?
When we spend our time in church, worshiping God, talking to Him, praising Him, listening to Him, and serving Him, our days have eternal meaning and joy. The same happiness is available when little ones learn to worship (verses 3–4). Ask the Lord for a perspective like that of the sons of Korah. It’s what will really make you happy. “I want more than anything to be in the courtyards of the Lord’s Temple. My whole being wants to be with the living God” (Psalm 84:2).
