I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever. Psalm 86:12
With my whole heart, or with all my heart.
What does that mean?
I will give thanks with all my energy and enthusiasm.
I will give thanks with sincerity and authenticity.
I will give thanks genuinely and earnestly.
My thanks will not be rote or canned.
My thanks will not be driven by duty or peer pressure.
My thanks will not be distracted or disingenuous.
Because God, whose name is to be praised forever and forever is worthy of my wholehearted thanks.
He is worthy of far more than I can offer or even express.
But since He is gracious enough to receive my thanks
How can I do anything else but give Him my wholehearted thanks?
