While saying grace the other night before dinner, my son concluded with, “God, would You like me to sing You a song?” He then hummed a tune for a little bit and said, “Amen.”
Now, besides being quite cute, this got me thinking. Many parts of the Bible are devoted to praising God and singing to Him. I love God so much; I really ought to specifically praise Him more!
I do give gratitude every day, consistently, but do I ever just sing a song for God? Well, I wasn’t planning to literally make up a catchy tune. But I decided to try this concept—to just really intentionally give praise to God. Not because I think He somehow needs something from me, but just because I love God.
