4 These things I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go to the house of God
under the protection of the Mighty One
with shouts of joy and praise
among the festive throng. Psalm 42:4
When people are asked to recall their earliest childhood memory, it’s interesting their responses. Some parents don’t even remember the details that the kids remember, but for some reason that event had been resting there for dozens of years.
David is recalling some of those memories and rejoicing that he had the privilege of participating. Now that he no longer could do it, he’s longing for it. He didn’t realize how much he missed it until it was taken away.
The question for us then is would we have enough memories of great worship to sustain us if we were ever to lose the privilege? Think about what ONE thing you can do this week to improve those times of worship. We all could improve because we cannot worship Him enough.
