Psalm 16 is a marvelous expression of David’s delight in God, but if we skip too fast over the lesson of verse 2, we won’t understand verse 3, which, instead of praising God, praises the saints as excellent ones. But David isn’t treating the saints as somehow disconnected from God. Instead, part of the reason that serving God and not idols is so wonderful for David is that God has surrounded him with faithful saints to encourage him, challenge him, and walk with him on the path of joy and life. So as you come to worship, look around, and praise God for the excellent ones He has brought into your life.
