“Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth” (Psalm 73:25).
Where he is now, emotionally and spiritually, is vastly different from an earlier period in the psalmist’s life. Then he was disoriented by the inequities of life and how the wicked prosper; consumed by the lingering bitterness of envy. It is the folly of the young and uninitiated. Life eventually teaches us what the church has been telling us all along…the things of this world come and go. God alone can fill our deepest longings.
