Psalm 117:1 Praise the LORD, all you nations; laud him, all you peoples.
When we want our children to learn to use the toilet, we show them over and over again. When we teach them the alphabet, we say it, sing it, and write it over and over and over. We use thousands of different methods to teach fundamental, important concepts so that our little ones progress toward independence.
God is creating us to be independent disciples, and this means we need to repeat our praises every day. The more examples to praise God we seek, find, and use, the richer our lives will become. We can come up with our own words to praise God, but we can also pray along with generations of believers by always coming back to the psalms.
For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever.
Praise the LORD.
