Praise Where Praise is Due

Credit and praise are tossed around quite a bit; people thank their teachers, parents, coaches… and “the Academy.”  People often thank others for something they have said or done; all of this is a good thing.

Usually missing from the lists of those who are thanked and praised is the name of the One from whom all good things and blessings come.

God is the source of our blessings, for He has blessed us in so many ways; even in ways we might not know about.  No one deserves our praise more; let’s give Him praise this week!

Praise the Lord, all you servants of the Lord
    who minister by night in the house of the Lord.
Lift up your hands in the sanctuary 
    and praise the Lord.

May the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth,
    bless you from Zion.

(Psalm 134)

I hope that all of us will pause this week to recall all that He has done for us, all of the ways that He has blessed us, all of the things that we have to be thankful for, and give Him thanks and praise.  No, there is nothing special about this week; it’s just a week like any other, and that makes it the perfect time to think about these things, for being blessed by our God is not any unusual event; it happens every day of the year.  Thus, it seems like giving our thanks and singing His praise is something that is due on any and every given day.
