Passion for Praise: 'Let the Heavens Be Glad!'

Thursday, August 11, 2022

Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice! Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise before the LORD, for he is coming! He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with justice, and the nations with his truth.
— Psalm 96:11-13
