Ps 27:4 The one thing I ask of the Lord—the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple.
David had the right idea. Think about it, all you have to do is live in church every day. No job, no bills, no children vying for your attention. You pray, worship, and serve God all the time. That is your only responsibility. Lofty goal but not practical, or is it. I think it is attainable in a metaphorical sort of way.
The house of the Lord is our mind, spirit and soul. Implanting praise, worship and the Word of God starts the process but how do you water those seeds. Christian fellowship, positive thought and the ability to filter out distractions in our life will give us a stronger desire to seek him first. When we set our priorities of putting him first in everything we do, it will give us more joy than we can imagine.
The “distractions” of life can keep us unsatisfied, and cause us to ignore God, the “One Thing” who can satisfy us with joy, peace and contentment. So many in the world today try to fill a void with a new car, relationship or other things, but the emptiness remains.
Our “temple” was made to be filled with only “One Thing”. The New Testament refers to our body “as a temple”. What do you fill your body with, spiritually speaking? I know our body needs food for nourishment but how about your soul. You can go to heaven with a sick body but not a sick soul.
