There’s no better way to start the week than by filling up with God’s Word. So each Monday morning join me here to take a brief, but reflective look into a passage of Scripture.
The family will be gathering at our house this week to celebrate Thanksgiving. Three parents, three grown children, two son-in-laws, one grandbaby on the way, and four dogs. It will be a full house.
When I read Psalm 145 Saturday morning during my quiet time, it made me realize what a great opportunity I’ll have this week to honor God.
I will exalt you, my God and King,
and praise your name forever and ever.
2 I will praise you every day;
yes, I will praise you forever.
3 Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
No one can measure his greatness.
4 Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts;
let them proclaim your power.
5 I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor
and your wonderful miracles.
6 Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;
I will proclaim your greatness.
7 Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness;
they will sing with joy about your righteousness.
8 The Lord is merciful and compassionate,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
9 The Lord is good to everyone.
He showers compassion on all his creation.
10 All of your works will thank you, Lord,
and your faithful followers will praise you.
11 They will speak of the glory of your kingdom;
they will give examples of your power.
12 They will tell about your mighty deeds
and about the majesty and glory of your reign.
13 For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps his promises;
he is gracious in all he does.
Psalm 145:1-13, NLT
No matter how old my children get, it is my responsibility and blessing to tell them about the greatness and goodness of God. I am thankful for all the ways God has worked in my life and I want to share that with my children – and my grandchildren.
What can you share about God with your family this week?
What glorious truths about God do you see in the Psalm that you can also share?
