Some people seem to be ill-natured, and others are good-natured. Which type would you rather spend the day with? (That’s a rhetorical question.) Gladness really is a choice. We can either dwell on all the things that are wrong and make ourselves grumpy, or we can think about what is good and be glad. When we think about the goodness of the Lord, our heart should explode with gladness. He loves us unconditionally. We never walk life’s pathway alone. He gives us peace and strength and comfort when we need it. God is good, and we are His. That’s reason enough to sing praises to His name.
