We have just experienced a season of thanksgiving for the many blessings received the past year. As Christmas approaches, we turn our focus on blessing others with gifts, cards, and words of gratitude. Even when we find ourselves facing tough times, we can count our blessings and be a blessing to others. King David, despite being pursued for his life, encourages us to be a blessing to God with all that we do and in all situations. I, too, want to encourage you right where you are in life to choose to bless God.
Psalm 63:3-5 (NIV)
3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. (bless you)
4 I will praise (bless) you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. (bless you)
