No matter our current employment status or life circumstance, as children of God we are blessed spiritually. This remarkable truth sets us free to worship, give thanks and praise the name of Jesus during every season. Jesus is worthy to be praised wherever you’re at today.
“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.”
—Psalm 100 (NIV)
“It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to your name, O Most High.”
—Psalm 92:1 (NKJV)
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”
—Ephesians 1:3 (NIV)

What are different ways we can worship and praise Jesus? Read Psalm 100. Today we get to create a psalm of praise! Select a family member to record the psalm. Start with a greeting to God. Next lines: “God we praise You because You are…” “God, we are thanking You for…” “God You are bigger than…” “God, You are more wonderful than…” Close by telling God what you love about Him. You wrote a psalm! Read the psalm aloud. Feeling extra creative? Turn it into a song!
