Praise Him! We're Too Poor To Pay Him
Why not praise the Lord ? It's really all you have to give. Everything else is his by authenticity, ownership, and purpose. If the actual truth be told, we're too poor to pay him for all, or anything he has done. If we attempted to pay him, he would probably respond by saying, that you're trying to pay me with is already mine. I count it all joy that God has given us a cheap way to respond to him for his goodness. That is to make a joyful noise for who he is, and what he has done.
There is a fictional Christmas song that will always give me an example of true praise and worship. The song is ' The Little Drummer Boy '. Following the entrance and departure of the wise men, He asks permission to play for the new born King. He confesses that he is poor too.
But, he renders his best praise on his drum. He says he has no gift like the wise men. Even though his attire is torn, and his little body is in need of cleansing, he still presents his best rum-pa-pum-pum. The drum had been cleaned and polished
for the King. The drum represented his heart.
