Your Love Is Better Than…
In Psalm 63, David wrote, “Your love is better than life…”
There is something in us that wants to compare the love of another to good things.
Psalm 63:3 reads, “Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.” It’s a verse I love, but one that I’m not sure I can consistently say truthfully (yet). You see I love my life. I have a good life. I’ve been blessed beyond measure with a wonderful wife (whose love is better than ice cream!), I have four amazing children, I get to do what I love – teach from God’s Word. I own more worldly possessions than I deserve.
The truth is, my eyes often wander from the Giver of all good things to the good things themselves. As Rich Mullins sang, “The stuff of earth competes for the allegiance I owe only to the giver of all good things.”
I want to love God more than life. I want to experience His love in such a tangible way that I can’t help but glorify God, as David did.
It was in that spirit that I borrowed David’s words in Psalm 63 to write the song, “Your Love Is Better Than Life” with my friend Nic Sarlo.

Maybe grab a bowl of ice cream, sit down to listen to it, and reflect on the goodness of the Giver.
