Readings of the day:
Psalm 18:31, 47, 50, 51
With his every deed, he offered thanks to God the most high, in words of praise.- Sirach 47:8
One thing characteristic of a Christian life is our gratuitous life to God and to people who we share our life with – our neighbours, families and friends. Our heart should always play strings of praise to God every second of our existence for the gift of everything, most especially for the gift of life.
In the first reading of today, we hear how King David specially sang of God’s praises by the altar beautifying the feast in which they celebrated. What else would you expect? God most definitely was pleased with him. Who else wouldn’t love a child that’s appreciative and sings praises of his name? It’s not an ending thing to do when praising God’s name. Even if we don’t have lips to do that, our heart can beat for God’s everlasting praises.
May our hearts continually sing of God’s praises. We ask this through Christ our Lord, amen.
