This excerpt comes from Psalms for All Seasons, commenting on Psalm 16:
The psalm includes a compelling description of God as “portion” and “cup” (v. 5).
For Christians, it is an apt Easter testimony because of its poignant description of life in the face of death (vv. 10-11; see Acts 2:25-31, 13:35, Rom. 6:3-4).
Prayer for reflection:
God of unending abundance,
in you alone we find all we need in this life and even more in the life to come.
Open our eyes to see your glory and our ears to hear your Word
until our hearts burn with the joy of your presence
and our lives proclaim the power of your love.
We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
