Nehemiah 12:24 And the chief of the Levites: Hashabiah, Sherebiah, and Jeshua the son of Kadmiel, with their brethren over against them, to praise and to give thanks, according to the commandment of David the man of God, ward over against ward.
It is amazing how God had His people planned to lead in praise and giving thanks. That shows just how important that is! I think so often about serving and praying. I think about getting. I think about doing but I don’t often think to take the time to praise. I don’t take the time to give thanks.
We are to give thanks always. That is what God wants us to do. He wants us to thank Him for all that He is doing in our lives. He is a good God and He is good to us.
Let’s praise Him. Let’s thank Him. Let’s think of all we have to be thankful and make praise and thanks a habit and part of our life!
