By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
How can you give praise to God continually? It’s actually easy – just do your best every day. If you give it your best effort every day and treat others the way that you would want to be treated, God will consider it as praise. You don’t have to be on your knees praying and singing every minute of the day. Just do your best.
God knows that humans are flawed but He also knows that we are made in His image. Therefore, we were created to do good things for others. This includes saying all the right things. This means staying away from gossip and bad-mouthing and just being considerate of others, even the people you can’t stand. Yes, everyone has a person or persons like that in their life, but it’s how we handle that person that determines what kind of Christian we are.
By being compassionate and giving to others, we are giving to God all that we can offer Him. We can never offer God enough praise for all that He has done for us. But, we can give Him what we do have. Showing our thanks to others is showing our thanks to God for putting those people in our lives. God doesn’t do anything by accident- – He has a plan for us all.
Let us all give thanks to our God by doing our best in each day that God gives us.
