the wisdom of praise

Psalm 47:6-7 (JDV)

Psalm 47:6 Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our King, sing praise!
Psalm 47:7 Sing a song of wisdom, because God is King of the whole land.

the wisdom of praise

The reason praise to God is wise is that he is king of the whole land. There are rival kings and thought systems and worldviews — even beings who pretend to be rival gods. But wisdom chooses the king who will be king after the last battle is fought.

Lots of thoughts go through our minds as we struggle through life. It is difficult to maintain a steady walk and witness. But there is a habit which will always identify us with the God who is king of the whole land. That habit is praise. To sing praises to God is to declare our allegiance to him. That is wise, considering what is going to happen to those who choose the wrong king.

Lord, make us wise singers of praise to you.
