O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens! (Psalm 8:1, Holy Bible, New King James).

Good, better, best–comparative terms in the English language. If I like something, I say it is good. If I compare two items, I choose the better. If I judge three or more, I select the best. When I declare the glory of God, none of these comparatives suffice. This psalm describes God as excellent. He is matchless, unbeatable, unconquerable, and undefeated. His glory is beyond comparison.

Prayer: Lord, my Lord, Your name is beyond description. It is higher than the highest, deeper than the deepest, wider than the widest, incomparable. Amen.
