When I visited Mexico, I wished I knew how to speak Spanish. I could say gracias (thank you), muy bien (very good), and hola (hello).

But that was about it.

I grew tired of just saying gracias to everyone who talked with me or did something for me.

But we should never grow tired

of giving words of thanks to God.

David knew the importance of saying thanks. After he became king over Israel and had a tent constructed to house the ark of the covenant (where God’s presence dwelt), he appointed some of the Levites “to commemorate, to thank, and to praise the Lord (1 Chron. 16:4). Many people remained there to offer sacrifices and give thanks to God daily (vv.37-38).


David also committed to Asaph and his associates a song of thanks (1 Chron. 16:8-36).

His psalm gave thanks for what the Lord had done: His deeds among the peoples (v.8), “His wondrous works” (v.9), “His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth” (v.12), and His “salvation” (v.35).

David’s song also gave praise for who the Lord was:
good, merciful, and holy (vv.34-35).

1 Chronicles 16:7-10,

( 1 Chronicles 16-Audio-)

Oh, give thanks to the Lord! —1 Chronicles 16:8

Like David, we should never grow tired of sayinggracias to God for who He is and for all He’s done for us. Take time today to offer your sacrifice of praise to Him.

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven, To His feet thy tribute bring; Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, Evermore His praises sing. —Lyte
The heart filled with praise brings pleasure to God.
