In 1 Chronicles 16, David chooses some of the Levites to be in charge of worship in the presence of the Ark of the Covenant. In verse 41, we read these words: “With them (those chosen to lead in worship) were Heman and Jeduthun and the rest of those chosen and expressly named to give thanks to the Lord, for his steadfast love endures forever.”
I love the phrase “chosen and expressly named.” This group of men was selected for one job: to respond in worship to the love of the Lord.
In today’s world, gratitude stands out. How can you express your gratitude to God for the love he has poured into your life? I’m so grateful for my family, our church, and the presence of God’s steadfast love in my life!
