Giving God Praise

Psalm 50:23
Those who offer praise as a sacrifice honor me.

When a tree is being a tree…it is giving praise to God. When a dog is being a dog…it is giving praise to its Maker. They really have no choice in the matter. But you and I do have a choice. We can choose whether we will be the unique people God made each of us to be…or whether we will choose to be someone else and wear masks pretending to be what we aren’t. When we take off the masks and are simply our “true selves”…each of us being the unique person God made us to be…we sacrifice all the endless yearnings of our egos to be a “false self” catering to its own whims and glory. When each of us is simply the unique masterpiece that God made us to be…we are praising God. As St. Irenaeus said, “The glory of God is the human fully alive.” Be you. No one else can do it!
