What shall I render to the LORD for all his benefits to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD.

Psalm 116:12-13 (ESV)

We truly have so much to thank God for. As David sings in psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits. The Lord not only provides us each day with our daily bread, but he also puts jam on it! The greatest of all the many blessings we receive so freely is salvation; and he fills our cup with thankfulness and joy. As the children’s chorus so simply puts it, Since the Lord saved me, I’m as happy as can be; My cup’s full and running over. Let us lift up our hearts in praise today.
