What Do You Give?

Kansas Sunrise 2013-wide

“Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength.”
Psalm 29:1

This is an interesting verse and David expands the meaning in the following 10 verses, but he starts out with an imperative: GIVE. Give, give what? The Hebrew word for give means to give, to bring, ascribe, or come on. The Psalmist says give or bring and ascribe glory and honor to the Lord. He is the only one worthy of all glory and honor—worship and reverence.

Too many times in our lives we can give other things or people honor and worship in our lives, but only God is worthy of all glory, strength, power, and dominion. And note that it is something that we are to do. It isn’t done out of having to or following a requirement. If it is, then the giving is not given with honor and worship. The giving must come from a heart that is full and overflowing. It is praise and worship flowing a grateful heart because of what Jesus has done for you.

Give the Lord glory – the value and honor that is due to His name. His name is higher than any other name in Heaven or on earth. His name is to be exalted above everything else; and when He is lifted up and glorified—honored—in the midst of His people, His presence fills the givers. It is from this point that you respond. ‘Yes, Lord, amen. Come on.’
