What is praise? Probably the last question expected from a cradle Catholic. I had already learned the important lesson of when to praise, as beautifully illustrated by Rebekah Durham’s robin in Praise in Winter. But suddenly, it seemed as if the understanding of what praise of God really is, was taken away from me, leaving me in the waters of asking yet again.
What is praise? I pressed.
The Angel stirred the waters.
Through Jesus let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips that confess His Name. ~ Hebrews 13: 15
Go home to your family and announce to them
all that the Lord in His pity has done for you. ~ Mark 5: 19
Swiftly, this understanding was laid before my eyes,
A sacrifice of praise
Fruit of lips that confess His Name
Announce to them all that the Lord in His pity has done for you.
