Be a Blessing
Passage: Psalm 104:1–1, Psalm 104:5, Psalm 104:10, Psalm 104:19, Psalm 104:24, Psalm 104:30–104:35
The ancient Hebrew words that are translated as "bless the Lord" or "praise the Lord" in verse 1 and verse 35 of this passage mean "adore the Lord with bended knee". Kneeling is not something we do very much in this day and age, but when we consider God's creation and all his mighty acts of salvation, adoring him with bended knee is an appropriate respone.
But adoring the Lord means more than bending the knee before him. We should also serve those around us, in that same spirit of humility and thanksgiving. By being a blessing to others, we can encourage them to bless the Lord.
