“Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.” Psalm 146:1-2 (KJV)
What are we to do while we live? We are to accumulate cars, homes, family, friends, fame, fortune, knowledge, wisdom, and whatever else may come to mind. No!
What are we to do while we live? None of those things mentioned in that first paragraph are bad; yet by themselves they do no meet our basic need. What are we to do while we live? Praise the LORD.
We praise the LORD by hearing His word, and doing it. We praise the LORD by believing the Son of God, God the Son. We praise the LORD by speaking His name when it may not be popular to do so.
What will I do while I live? I will praise the LORD.
One day everything that has breath will praise the LORD.
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:10-11
In that He will be praised.
