It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High. — Psalm 92:1
I don’t know about you, but it seems that so many times I find it easy to do the wrong things. Sometimes I say the wrong things or stay quiet when I should say something. Sometimes I go one way when I should have gone a different one. It can be a challenge to do the right thing, or good things, each and every time.
One thing you never have to worry about being good is in giving thanks to God and singing his praises. In multiple Scriptures, the Bible reminds us that we should be thankful and we should sing His praises, no matter what is going on around us.
We have so much to be thankful for too! We have life, food, clothes, friends, memories, hope, and so much more. It is tough for anyone to look through that list and not find something that they can be thankful for. For the Christian, we can find so much more. We have the hope of heaven and the salvation we find in Jesus Christ.
So while the world around us may want to look at all the bad things, we should set it in our hearts to do a good thing. Start off the day by thanking God for the little things. For simply waking up and the ability to live another day. Thank Him for mercy and grace. Remember all the little things. Sing His praises as you go throughout the day.
Make it a habit to do one good thing every morning: to give thanks to God!
