“One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.”
David saw His beauty in the temple.
He understood that delighting in the Lord is the most important thing. He desired to see the beauty of the Lord and be in His presence in the temple.
Mary chose to sit at His feet.
“And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
Mary had chosen to sit at the Lord’s feet which only made her want to see and hear more. She even washed His feet with her hair to show her servitude.
Paul pressed on.
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Paul did not dwell in the past. He wanted to fulfill God’s purpose for his life, so he pressed on ahead.
Make today about one thing.
