Re:Verse reading–Psalm 16 (day three)
“Apart from you I have no good thing.”  Where there is good, there is God.  The trouble is, the human heart finds it hard to determine what is truly good.  We can marvel at a newborn baby or stand in awe of the photograph of a distant star coming into existence, and we can surmise that a Creator must be at work.  But we can just as easily treat gossip like “choice morsels” (Proverbs 18:8).  Sin has severely stunted our ability to tell the difference.  It is true that where there is good, there is God.  But we would do well to seek God first, and know that where there is God, there is good.
