All the earth should shout joyfully to the Lord. Serve the Lord with gladness. Come before His presence with singing. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and praise His name.
Know that the Lord, He is God. It is He who has made us, we did not make ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. The Lord is good. His mercy is everlasting and His fruit endures to all generations.
God created everything we see, everything we can't, and He created us. He deserves our praises and our gratitude. Look at all the evil people and evil nations that He has destroyed. We as people of this generation should be grateful that we are still here.
God takes cares of our needs, not our desires. We should be thankful to Him for what we have and not blame Him for what we do not. His mercy is also something that we should be thankful for. Be grateful that God is longsuffering and that He does not make rash decisions. If He did, this world would already be gone. We should all show God the love that He has shown to us. Give Him the respect that He deserves.
