In this psalm of praise, God is compared to the ideal earthly king – one who is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, good to all, and compassionate. In verse 4, we read, “One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.”
How practiced are you at sharing with younger generations what God has done in your life? How often do you recognize goodness in the world as God’s doing? Who are the fallen ones that God has lifted up and who are the ones, bending under the weight of this world, has God raised? In what ways has God provided for all of creation to thrive and grow?
In the next day or two, share a reason for praise of God with someone who is younger than you.
