Psalm 84:10 (the Message) says, “I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin.”
Think about that one for a minute. I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin…….
Is that literal or just ideological?
I think it can be both. Literal – I’d rather scrub floors at church than be a big shot at the local casino. I believe this should be a guide for grateful living. Because we have been given much, we need to live as if we need nothing more than to push a broom in God’s house to be happy.
But also rhetorical – are we living our lives as if we are there to help? Are we there to be behind the scenes and to leave things in a better way than when we came?
As you and I look at what God wants for us, remember, He said it’s better to scrub floors in God’s House than be a guest at a palace of sin………
