Notice, if you would, the following verses.
Verse 1 – O give thanks unto the Lord.
Verse 2 – O give thanks unto the God of gods.
Verse 3 – O give thanks to the Lord of lords.
Verse 26 – O give thanks unto the God of heaven.
You get the idea that the psalmist wanted the people to give thanks to God.
We do have a lot to be thankful for, do we not?
Mark Tidd of
“To our chagrin, he returned the next week, introducing himself as Mr. Roth, the man who lived in the shack down the road. As our fears subsided, we got close enough to realize it wasn’t alcohol but cataracts that marbleized his eyes. On subsequent visits, he would shuffle in, wearing two mismatched right shoes, and pull out a harmonica. With glazed eyes set on future glory, he’d puff out old gospel tunes between conversations about vegetables and religion.
“On one visit, he exclaimed, ‘The Lord is so good! I came out of my shack this morning and found a bag full of shoes and clothing on my porch.’
‘That’s wonderful, Mr. Roth!’ we said. ‘We are so happy for you.’‘You know what’s even more wonderful?’ he asked. ‘Just yesterday I met some people who could use them.’”
What to do:
✞ Today, and everyday, give thanks to God.
