Every human being is morally obligated to thank and praise God for the precious gift of life. So often we treat Him as we would the “sound man” at church, giving Him no thought until something goes wrong. As Christians, we should also be bursting with worship, praise, and thanksgiving to God for laying the foundation of our eternal salvation. See also Psa. 136:1; Rom. 1:20,21.
Ezra 3:11 And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord: For He is good, For His mercy endures forever toward Israel. Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.
