- Always praise God (v. 1)
- Boast in God and Be humble (v. 2)
- Come together to praise God (v. 3)
As a result of actively thinking about who God is and how great God is, David is overwhelmed with the need to invite others to worship with him, to magnify God, and exalt His name.
It is my hope and prayer that these resources will stir in you a desire to worship God more and invite others to join you in that worship.
Here are some sermon-based questions
- What do you tend to put your hope in when you know it should be God?
- Why is a foundation so important? Why are "always praise God," "boast in the LORD and be humble," and "come together to worship God" foundational parts of worship?
- If you want to grow as a worshipper of God, what do you specifically need to pray and do?

Contagious Worship: All the Time, All Together (June 30, 2015)
To pursue humility means choosing to accept the fact that your knowledge and abilities are limited and in light of that, you are regularly seeking help and graciously receiving advice and correction.
While this book is specifically to sons and fathers, it contains teaching that would be helpful for any parent. The six character qualities are especially helpful.
When David says "I will magnify God with thanksgiving," he does not mean: "I will make a small God look bigger than he is . He means: "I will make a big God begin to look as big as he really is." We are not called to be microscopes, but telescopes."
The whole duty of the Christian can be summed up in this: feel, think and act in a way that will make God look as great as he really is. Be a telescope for the world of the infinite starry wealth of the glory of God."
