"Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Your name give glory because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth." (Psalms 115:1)
We glorify ourselves more than a peacock fans his feathers. One compliment inflates our head like a balloon, and a cheer of praise makes it a mountain. Then, poof! One look at God and that balloon pops. What are we to compare with Him? What is mud compared to gold or a shack compared to a castle? Why are the mud and shack praised when they deserve to be torn down, and the gold and the castle scorned as worthless?
All glory belongs to the glorious One. He gave glory to us who had none, distributing the spoils to us even though we did not participate in the battle. There is nothing in Him that is not glorious. He deserves exaltation for every attribute. Let us praise Him who loved us when we hated Him, and who gave us His divine truth when we spurned it. No one loves as strongly as He does. No one's words are as true as His. He deserves more honor than a thousand soldiers, for He has rescued more with His words than any army saved with the sword.
