Today's reading: Psalm 34:1-3
David is known for the way he praised God, and we see many of his words and actions of praise through the psalms he wrote. So it's no surprise that Psalm 34 starts out with David's proclamation that he will bless the Lord and praise him continually. Immediately after making this statement, David writes, "My soul makes its boast in the LORD" (vs. 2). I was drawn to this description of David's heart for God as well as the following encouragement to join with him in full-out worship and praise of our magnificent God in verse 3.
"Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!"
If you were to proclaim like David, "My soul makes its boast in the Lord," what would that look like, or how would it play out in your day-to-day life? How would it impact your interaction with people at work, home, church or in the community? What influence would it have on your decision making? Tami
