Read Psalm 111


Read Psalm 111

Praise the Lord!
With all my heart I will thank the Lord
in the assembly of his people.
2     How wonderful are the things the Lord does!
All who are delighted with them want to understand them.
3     All he does is full of honour and majesty;
his righteousness is eternal.
4     The Lord does not let us forget his wonderful actions;
he is kind and merciful.
5     He provides food for those who honour him;
he never forgets his covenant.
6     He has shown his power to his people
by giving them the lands of foreigners.
7     In all he does he is faithful and just;
all his commands are dependable.
8     They last for all time;
they were given in truth and righteousness.
9     He set his people free
and made an eternal covenant with them.
Holy and mighty is he!
10   The way to become wise is to honour the Lord;x
he gives sound judgement to all who obey his commands.
He is to be praised for ever.

Think

The Psalmist says: "With all my heart I will thank the LORD." (1)
"The way to become wise is to honour the LORD." (Vs 10)
Do we give thanks to God with our 'whole' heart?

Pray

Dear Lord, I spend more time telling you how to do your job than I do giving you thanks for the way you've done it.  Help me to live in simple, thankful, obedience to you.
Amen


10 111.10: Job 28:28; Pr 1:7; 9:10
x The way ... the Lord; or The most important part of wisdom is honouring the Lord.
