Ascribe S'More

A couple of days ago I wrote about the command to “ascribe” or acknowledge the reality of who God is.  I ran into it again today with a slightly different emphasis.
Read Psalm 96:7 – 10.  Note the commands here:
  • Ascribe (again 3x)
  • Bring
  • Come
  • Worship (again)
  • Tremble
  • Say
There are similarities and differences between this passage and Psalm 29:1 – 2.  The interesting thing to me here s were the psalmist begins; with families.
We are to ascribe to the Lord who He is with our families.  How does that command impact our focus?
The command is for families to ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.  Think about the implications of that on how we approach worship.  How we approach rearing our children.  How we approach their education.

Think about the implications on our personal walk with God.

  1. Nineveh under the preaching of Jonah experienced a transforming and judgment-averting repentance. Apparently they failed to do just what you are talking about, Mike. As we read about in Nahum it's only a hundred or so years until judgment is again promised by God because of their exceptional violence.

    Of course we also know the history of Israel (Judges 2:10,11, etc.,etc.) America began to give oppressed Europeans the opportunity to worship God as they saw fit (perhaps the problem, actually) but now such worship is increasingly forced away to be hidden.

    We still have our homes; that was God's plan from the beginning anyway.
