Main point summary
Life can't make sense if we aren't on our knees in front of God. Once there, we'll not only see what's ahead of us (glory) and what's ahead of those who reject God (misery), we'll also see that what we have right now (God with us) is better than anything else the world can offer.
Psalms 73:16-28
But when I thought how to understand this,
it seemed to me u a wearisome task,
until I went into v the sanctuary of God;
then I discerned their w end.
Truly you set them in x slippery places;
you make them fall to ruin.
How they are destroyed y in a moment,
swept away utterly by z terrors!
Like a a dream when one awakes, O Lord,
when b you rouse yourself,
you despise them as phantoms.
When my soul was embittered,
when I was pricked in heart,
I was c brutish and ignorant;
I was like d a beast toward you.
Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
you e hold my right hand.
You f guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will g receive me to glory.
h Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
i My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is j the strength 1 of my heart
and my k portion l forever.
For behold, those who are m far from you shall perish;
you put an end to everyone
who is n unfaithful to you.
But for me it is good to o be near God;
I have made the Lord God my p refuge,
that I may q tell of all your works.
