Wholehearted Praise

To awaken each morning with the resolve, "I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart," is to go forth in the spirit of well-being and well-doing. It is to embark upon the day's duties, including the highest duty of sustained true thinking, with the joyous conviction that divine Principle, having inspired this resolve, empowers us to carry it through consistently and successfully. To praise God means simply to reflect good. Wholehearted praise is the remedy for halfhearted effort. Intelligent trust in the one creator of the one perfect creation impels us to shut out all the suggestions of the so-called carnal mind. To praise God means to prove the omnipotence of good, and it is from God that this ability emanates.

Wholehearted homage has the support of spiritual law. "Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart." To observe God's law in the heart means that we habitually entertain thoughts of health and holiness, joyfulness and love, for this is singleminded homage.
