Depth of Praise

“Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!” (Psalm 146:1, Holy Bible, NKJ).

Shallow thanks or other expressions of gratitude echo the hollow sound of a rehearsed delivery, absent of enthusiasm, offered for social requirements. The psalmist proclaims “Praise the Lord!” He repeats it, then declares the sounds more than shallow words from his lips. They are offered from his soul.

Prayer: Lord, I give You praise today. Not a shallow praise that comes from obligation, but praise from my soul! Amen.
