Give Praise to the Lord

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done.  (Psalm 105:1)

What He has done….

Make it known…

My opportunity to speak to nations has yet to come…ha..ha… but each day I have the opportunity to speak with a small part of this nation, in my home, around my kitchen table. 

Each day as we sit around that table we eat meals, study history, and do math, science and language arts.  But something more happens there everyday.  That something is the best part of my day.  It’s when praise is given to the Lord, when His name is proclaimed, when what He has done is being shared or I see the evidence of His work in the heart of my children. 

There always seems to be an emphasis on praising our children.  I encourage you today to praise the Lord, proclaim His name, and make it known what He has done. 

Look for ways to build your children up in the Lord, instead of self.  When you see evidence of the Lord at work in their hearts take a moment to stop and praise the Lord and point it out to your child.
