Where Do You Seek Good?

Where do you seek good? David tells us that everybody wants to see good, but instead of coming to God, we try to find good things elsewhere. We look to created things: grain and wine, human relationships, and the entertainments we concoct, but at the end of the day, we are bored and unsatisfied. Who will show us something good? David says that in the light of God’s face he has more joy than he gets anywhere else. So if you are looking for something good, you’ve come to the right person. Oh, that we might share David’s experience! We know that what he describes should be true of us, but so often, it isn’t. We glance quickly at God, and wonder why we aren’t satisfied. But the answer is here in Psalm 4: look deeply into the face of Jesus, and find your good in Him.
