Psalm 47 proclaims:
Your merciful love, O God,
we have received in the midst of your temple.
The psalmist has had an experience of God’s love. She has received something special and the normal response when you receive gratuitously is to share the news.
Notice that the gift received is in the “temple.” That’s interesting to say the least.
We are the temple. We receive God’s love in our very being. That’s why we try to be sensitive to what’s happening within us.
If we are, then we become aware of the merciful love of the Lord.
