Psalms 145 I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever....
There's no question that God wants and expects our praise. But Psalm 145 also makes it clear that our praise has a secondary purpose--to inform others about God and His goodness. Verse 4 tells us how one generation should speak well about God's works and share God's mighty acts with another generation. Then in verses 11-12 David again talks about how we should speak about God's glory and power and His mighty deeds to children.
So what does your praise look like? Are you using your praise to tell and show others about God? What are some examples of "directed praise"? Tami W.
