“Better is…” a place where we do not see clearly. A place we must rely on God’s Word.
Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked. Psalm 84:10
Better to have nothing and see God’s glory,
Than to have everything in darkness.
Better to be last with Jesus,
Than to be alone at the top.
Better to mourn and receive comfort from Jesus,
Than a thousand days of laughter without hope.
Better to be merciful and receive mercy,
Than trying to justify yourself before God.
Better is to humbly follow Jesus,
Than pursue all the wisdom of this world.
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Mark 8:36
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil. Proverbs 3:5-7
