Psalm 4:7 

You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when grain and wine and oil increase.

Is this now, or is this in the future? Is this the result of my prayer? I don’t know much about grain and wine and oil increasing or what that might mean or why it should make me happy. But I do feel, in the best of times, that you have put gladness in my heart. When I serve at your Altar, when I sing, when I talk about you with friends, and when I see your work being done. Then I feel the gladness in my heart, more than when I get free dinners, or Wake Forest wins a football game, or when a pretty girl smiles back at me. Those things I understand.
