The Psalms of Thanksgiving

I am slowly but surely returning to a regular blogging schedule, and I thought for this month’s “Scripture Sunday,” I would share some of the Psalms of Thanksgiving.

I wish I could find the original source for the photo above: it’s taken at one of my favorite places, and truly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

Psalm 100:4 says, “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”

According to various commentaries I have read, the verse refers to entering a public place of worship and being able to worship God with a Thankful heart. David is the likely writer of this song of Thanksgiving.

It is believed that this verse has to do with being thankful for the opportunity to worship God openly and publicly. In our modern day society, there are many civilizations and nations which do not allow the public worship or even the public profession of Christian faith.

I am thankful to be able to worship my God in public without fear.
