Attending Court

rusted_crown_m.jpg

In your courts, Your attendants are plentiful, dutifully seeing to Your needs.

But some are like jesters. Tripping over one another to get your attention.

While some sink into the woodwork doing all that is possible not to be noticed.

Some have no time to stop and give You your due praise; for they’re too busy with self appointed duties.

Many come Your way, shake Your hand, with their lip service. Looking at their watches as they head out the doors of your chambers.

While others wait in the hallways outside Your doors. They pace the floors, too nervous, for they think themselves not good enough to enter Your gates.

While the total opposite try to sit at your right hand and anticipate Your every royal move. Thinking they have what it takes to be You.

Then there are those who sit in your presence just to be near You. To hear You. To serve You because You first loved them.

May we all strive to be the latter.

Psalm 100:4 (KJV)

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
