We praise man for his ability to paint or draw: an object, nature, another human, etc. Yet those paintings are mere copies of God’s original pieces. So why don’t we praise God instead?
We praise man for his ability to sing a note on tune, because of his voice. Yet, we fail to acknowledge the Creator of sound Himself. Think about how well God can sing! I’m sure it’s good enough to make our ears go deaf due to pure shock of it’s beauty!
We praise man for his physical beauty, as if it was molded by his own hands. How about we praise the Creator instead? More so, how about we stop looking at the beauty the world focuses on, and start judging beauty based off of people’s heart. What we would call our “inner self” or “inner beauty” is God’s ENTIRE self. Yet, He is, of course, eternally-times better than we could ever be!
We praise people who seem closest to “God-like” in our eyes. Those with the “best” abilities. Yet, people don’t acknowledge God half as much. The actual Creator of the senses that allows us to see, hear, and taste “man’s” abilities.
We praise God for all He has done FOR us, why not praise Him, simply for Him, minus US? Do we not know Him enough to do so? Are we that selfish that we only see God through His works in us, rather than through His actual being, His character. Who would’ve thought that praise could be selfish?
Moral of story: Praise God instead.
