Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 79 – 81
Verse of the Day: Psalm 81:1 – “Sing aloud unto God our strength: Make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.”
The Psalm 81 begins as a song of praise to God and shortly turns into a song that has the voice of God admonishing them for their idolatry.
Just because we smile and say all the right words does not mean that our hearts are right with God. Sometimes people know all the right things to say and do, yet they are not honoring or worshipping God. We can worship and honor ourselves, an organization, or just the very acts we do. Everything we do should be for the praise and honor and glory of God.
Today, as you go through your day, examine your heart in every action you perform. Is it for God’s glory – or for some other reason?
Prayer: Search me, O God, check my motives and make them clear to me. Amen.
