"It is good to sing praises unto our God (Psalm 1471)
It is bad when the tongue (that organ of praise) is
out of tune and jars by murmuring and discontent.
But it is a good thing to be thankful. It is good,
because this is all a creature can do to lift up God's name;
and it is good because it tends to make us good.
The more thankful we are, the more holy.
While we pay this tribute of praise,
our stock of grace increases.
In other debts, the more we pay, the less we have;
but the more we pay this debt of faithfulness,
the more grace we have."
~ Thomas Watson
