Praise and Adoration
by Charles R. Swindoll

Because Your lovingkindness 
is better than life, 
my lips will praise You.
Psalm 63:3

Praise is a deeply significant aspect of our personal worship, and we are remiss if we ignore it. 

We praise God by expressing words of honor to Him for His character, His name, His will, His Word, His glory, etc.

Husband, when you were dating your wife-to-be, can you remember doing this? You looked at her hair . . . and you expressed praise over her hair. You praised her for her beauty, her choice of perfume and clothing, and her excellent taste.

Praise came naturally because that was a genuine, stimulating part of romance. 

By the way, I hope you haven't stopped praising her! Praise is greatly appreciated by your wife, and likewise by our Lord.

Praise is to flow from within us. 

Praise is an aspect of prayer—adoration directed to God.
