"For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills." Deuteronomy 8: 7
Ahhhh...the beginning of the promises. The good part. The part most (cough:cough: *I*) focused upon.
Not that I'm in this thing for the loot. I'm not that kind of a girl. Really. Don't care.
I was pretty sure that I was one of God's favorite kids (note to readers--I consider that ALL are God's 'favorite') and that it was His delight to give me good things.
And that's easy for me to imagine, since I delight in giving my children good things. If I delight in something, how much more is a perfect God able to give good things to His precious children.
So, if I wasn't in it for the *things*, what was I in it for? What was it about this verse that made my heart go ka-thump?
That's for tomorrow (or the next day)!
For today, I must go to the zooooooooo! [grin]
