I see posts with negative comments or jokes on Facebook and YouTube about people praising the Lord at weddings and currently graduations, etc. all the time, and I find it is interesting that some think praise is appropriate only in church. What about “I will bless the Lord at ALL times! Why is it okay to dance and scream about someone carrying a ball across the goal line for a touchdown, but you should be quiet when the Lord has carried you safely through 13 years of school (more if you are graduating from college). It’s okay for schools to blast secular music in the gym for physical education everyday and to hold dances for kids who are only 5 and up (which automatically leads them to talk about dating and boyfriends and girlfriends even in kindergarten), yet Christians should not pray at school or out loud to avoid offending others. Yes, there is a time and season for all things. Yes, all things should be done decently and in order. My only question is why is that time and place becoming less and less while our world is getting worst and worst everyday. To those who want to get your praise on I say celebrate to the fullest, dance like David danced inspite of the ridicule of others, because the world sure enough won’t stop doing their evil to avoid your discomfort or respect your lifestyle and God’s ways. To God be the glory!
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
