Praise God!

Bill Brinkworth

Praise is bestowing compliments “on a person for his personal virtues or worthy actions …”, as Noah Webster explained it. Psalms is the praise book of the Bible with the word “praise” mentioned 132 times.

It is very important to God, and should be to us, to praise God for all the wonderful things He has done in our lives.  He never tires of our praising Him. We are to praise Him, as we are reminded in Psalms, because:

Praising God is a way to show that we are grateful to Him for all He has done.  We all have so much to praise Him for.  God is so good to us; certainly better than we deserve.

“Praise has different effects, according to the mind it meets with; it makes a wise man modest, but a fool more arrogant.” — Feltham
