One thing you lack

RE Verse reading–Psalm 23, Psalm 27:1-5, Psalm 116:1-9, Matthew 6:25-33 (day one)  “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want”  (23:1)  Fairly often I meet people who have achieved a degree of success (career, personal, financial) but who are, nevertheless, still anxious, worried, restless.  These encounters always remind me of Jesus and His conversation with the Rich Young Ruler ( Mark 10)  “One thing you lack”, says the Lord and then proceeds to tell him how to establish a relationship with God (via faith) that would yield peace and life.  In what may be the most familiar passage of scripture in the entire Bible, David describes such a relationship–one that makes a person grateful and confident and hopeful, no matter the challenges being faced.  Friend, have you found such a relationship?  It is possible!  As we read this week, I am praying for God to show us how to NOT LACK THE ONE THING WE NEED MOST–a heart that is calm and confident in Him!
