WHY PRAISE?

Psalm 105:1-5

So why should we praise
God, anyway? I mean,
why bother?
I think God knows
better how we feel about God
than we do ourselves.
So I repeat the question,
Why praise God?
I have heard many reasons,
but none of them are
sufficient for me.
Usually
they just revolve around
getting
something from God
that we really, really want.
Praise in this scenario equals
bribery.
As if God is dumb
enough to fall for that!
Don’t get me wrong, here,
I don’t think it is a bad thing
to give God praise,
because it does show we recognize
from whence
