Earth Has Nothing
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
Social Media platforms such as Google, Facebook and Youtube do not sell any products. However, as people go to these sites to view videos, to do a search or to update their status, they will see advertisements on the video or on the website itself. These marketing ads are what make these social media companies billions of dollars in profits. These ads are in addition to the advertisements we see on television, the movie previews and on billboards and buses. The goal of these ads is to compel you to want what the company is offering.
This is a challenge for those who live in North America where there is so much wealth and excess. We have so much that can distract us from God. This psalm reflects the heart of somebody who really desires God over anything else in the world. Instead of the next ‘i’ gadget or other desire, this person saw nothing on earth desirable. This would be a great beginning to a prayer to remind me of what I should have on my heart.
