Title - Oh! that men would praise the Lord

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Psalm 107: 31-32. 

Bible Passages:- Psalm 107: 31-32

As today is a Thanksgiving Sunday, we may not dive in too deep into the Word.
Today is a day to praise God. Not a time to bombard God with request rather let us praise Him.

For David to make the exclamation "Oh that men would praise God" means he must have seen how ungrateful humans are to God.

Everyday, people are dying as a result of health issues, some in accidents, others were murdered.

Oh that men would be thoughtful and grateful to God.
Do you think it is because you are better than does who died brutally?
How wrong you are if you think so.

Why are you complaining because your bank account is not as robust as you intend ?
Or because you don't have a new car, shoes, clothes and other material things that we allow weigh us down ?

Let me narrate a true story in Nigeria where some people kidnapped and brutally murdered all in the name of black magic, power, money etc ?
Those that were brutally murdered are not worse sinners than we that are still alive.
But God was merciful to keep you alive yet you are not grateful to Him?

Instead of complaining, why not count your blessings, name them one by one, 
why not count your blessings and see what the Lord has done
Just count your blessings and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.
