I like the word “willing” in this verse. On occasion I’ve had someone perform a favor for me with an attitude that screamed “I’d rather be doing something else.” It’s hard to be appreciative for the kindness when it’s offered so unwillingly. I hope the things I do for my Lord are done willingly rather than begrudgingly. I hope the words that come from my mouth are sincere rather than rote. I want my praise to be willing and honest so it’s an acceptable offering to the One who loves me. (Photo compliments of Phoebe Janzen)
