Best. Night. Ever.

Her husband had done the dishes for her.

Psalm 33:1-22

Reference: “The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.” ‭Psalm‬ ‭33:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Explore: A friend recently posted on social media that she had just got the energy to do the dishes, after a long day at work and after putting the children to bed. When she went to the kitchen she discovered it was all clean and clear.

Her husband had done the dishes for her.

The responses to her post were quite humorous. Wives asking her to train their husbands and grand accolades directed towards her spouse.

It seems like quite a simple thing, and clearly done by many people every night, but these acts of unexpected love and service are always much appreciated.

Application: Sometimes it can be tricky to see the good in our lives. We get used to the roof over our head and the job we have to wake up early for.

It’s often easier to identify the things that frustrate us rather than that which brings us joy.

Psalm 33 was a great reminder to me of the happiness around us. “…The earth is full of his unfailing love.”
Sometimes we just forget to stop and look for His love. But if we were to think of all we have, we would start to see God’s love for us.

It’s easy to only hear the bad news and be surrounded by judgment and negativity. Our God, however, is the God of love and He is everywhere. Therefore, wherever you look, His love can be found.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for sharing Your ever present love with us. May we never take it for granted but see it every day in our lives. Amen.

Where have you seen God’s love in the last day?
