Don't you just love getting compliments from other people? Of course you do! It makes me feel so good when someone tells me that I look good in a certain color, or they like my piano music, or when someone says that I have a sweet spirit. When someone praises us or gives us a compliment it builds us up and encourages us to try to continue doing whatever it was that initiated their uplifting comment. Because I know how good it makes me feel to get a compliment, I like to try and compliment other people so they can be encouraged.
The Bible teaches us to praise God and to give Him compliments. Years ago I was a part of Bible Study Fellowship and they taught us a form of praying that always starts with praise to God. Every day we need to tell God how wonderful He is, just because He is God and because he deserves our praise. God is awesome, powerful, almighty, loving and merciful. I could go on and on. Reading the book of Psalms is a good way to learn how to praise God. And then after we give Him the praise he desires and deserves, you will automatically start thanking Him for so many things. Not only will God be honored and glorified by our praise, but you will start feeling so much better and it will give you a much more positive outlook toward everything in your life!
From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised. Psalm 113:3
