Psalm 50:23  But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.

This Psalm of Asaph is one that truly should convict many of us, including myself. It says in verses 16-20:  But God says to the wicked: “Why bother reciting my decrees and pretending to obey my covenant? [17] For you refuse my discipline and treat my words like trash. [18] When you see thieves, you approve of them, and you spend your time with adulterers. [19] Your mouth is filled with wickedness, and your tongue is full of lies. [20] You sit around and slander your brother—your own mother’s son. 

Are we truly living in a way that says we are “all in” for Christ? Are we truly appreciative of the gift of Salvation we have been given? Or do we feel entitled, because we think we are better than others. NEWS FLASH: Your sin is not any better than a murderer’s sin; sin is sin. Period! We have all fallen short, and we can all be saved by the blood of Jesus. I encourage you to live in a way that pleases God today; live thankful for the saving blood. Live thankful for His grace, patience, mercy, love….oh, the list could go on and on.
