You know the game.
I ask would you rather live at the beach or in the mountains? You answer and then fire a different scenario back at me.
It’s not a bad way to pass time on a long car ride or while sitting at the airport.
But here’s one for you (more for followers of Jesus, but open to all):
Would you rather be a doorkeeper in the house of God or dwell in the tents of wickedness?
Wait. I know what you’re thinking. It doesn’t sound like a hard choice when the word wickedness is used.
But really think about it before answering.
If you answer the former–that you would rather be a doorkeeper (like the guy pictured)–here’s my follow up: Does your life answer in the same fashion?
Do you earnestly believe and live in such a fashion that says spending a day in the courts of God as a doorkeeper is better than a thousand days at Disney, ESPN Zone, the race track, gym, movie theater, etc.?
I have been so quick to affirm and proclaim lofty assertions with my mouth only to recognize that my life indicts me as being double-minded.
For 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
Thanks for the challenge friend!
It’s the least I can do! Especially on account of my passive aggressive slapping son.
