Psalm 37:16 The little that the righteous person has is better than the abundance of many wicked people
Psalm 37:17 because the arms of the wicked will be broken, but Yahveh supports the righteous.
the little is better
Having a bunch of stuff seems to be the life’s goal of some. But what good is an armload of precious things, if your arms are going to be broken so you can no longer hold them? What good is an abundance that is doomed to be lost – destroyed along with your own soul?
Our journey is a difficult one, so it is best that we travel light, and enjoy the little that our Master gives us for that journey. My experience as a hiker has taught me that more is too much. The little is better than the abundance, and is appreciated all the more because of its scarcity.
Lord, thank you for providing just what we need.
