The Essence of Life

Psalm 63:1-4

O God, you are my God, I seek you,
    my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
    as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
    beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
    my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
    I will lift up my hands and call on your name.”  NRSV

Not only is God’s steadfast love “better than life,” God’s steadfast love is the very essence of life. The Psalmist reminds us of the praiseworthiness of this reality.
