I find these words from the Psalms intriguing to consider, “thy lovingkindness better than life.” I see how this means that the lovingkindness of the LORD is even better than our actual life. Since life is inherently so very important to us that there is even something more important to us as it is spelled out in this verse.

I find it refreshing to consider these words in acknowledging them and unifying with them that it becomes a great pleasure to extend the lovingkindness of the LORD. Here life is better and all things are put in perspective accordingly.

I note also in my awareness that the lovingkindness of the LORD has many textures to it not just soft, but also something very strong. Something strong as iron.

Consider for yourself how the lovingkindness of the LORD is better than life…


We have to slow down enough to see the lovingkindness of the LORD  that is all around. It abounds in the tiniest of plants to the largeness of the sky. Slow down and see the abundance and let it fill your soul to overflowing. Know the excellence of the lovingkindness of the LORD. Praise the central spirit that animates all!


Everyday, really every moment, we have an opportunity to show forth the lovingkindness of the LORD. As I think about what it means to show forth lovingkindness in the morning I understand it to mean that in the early part of every moment I am positioned to provide that which is kind, that which blends and provides the integration of the oneness of love with all I am with. As I take note of the disturbances that have rocked my soul whereby dissipating this kindness I affirm deeper the need to abide in a place that is spiritually ready. I see the need to continually position my heart in a spirit of complete thankfulness for the gift to be alive in form for the opportunity to bring the kingdom of heaven on earth. As I position my heart  accordingly I see how I can shift my mental perspective from the things that have irritated me to a perspective of opportunity. Here is a realization of active fulfillment.
