For David, praising God was not something that was done once a week, nor just a couple minutes during the day; It was a lifetime event! Moreover, he understood that he could not simply offer God lip-service; David had to walk the talk. He was unsatisfied with a mere, intermittent, declaration of his relationship with God, he wanted his every action to be a statement that lifted up the God he loved to the world! In the same way, love does not ask “What’s the least I can do?” Those who feel the compelling love of God, do not ask how little they have to give to meet the requirements of God; they do not ask for the lowest standard, but aim at perfect conformity to the will of their Redeemer. The question, then, becomes:

Are you willing to make your life “a living sacrifice” today?
