Isaiah 12:4

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Isaiah 12:4


Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;

make known among the nations what he has done,
and proclaim that his name is exalted. Isaiah 12:4


Two old friends met each other on the street one day.  One looked forlorn, almost on the verge of tears.  His friend asked, “What has the world done to you, my old friend?”

The sad fellow said, “Let me tell you:  three weeks ago, my uncle died and left me forty thousand dollars.”
“That’s a lot of money.”
“But you see, two weeks ago, a cousin I never even knew died, and left me eighty-five thousand dollars, free and clear.”
“Sounds to me that you’ve been very blessed.”
“You don’t understand!” he interrupted.  “Last week my great-aunt passed away.  I inherited almost a quarter of a million from her.”
Now the man’s friend was really confused.  “Then, why do you look so glum?”
“This week . . . nothing!
When we receive so much on a regular basis, it's easy to come to expect it and not realize how blessed we are. That's why it's important to develop a thankful attitude by thinking about all that God has done for you, thanking Him every day, and telling others about Him.
