do unto God as you would have God do unto you

The Word for today:
Psalm 26
mark this: Psalm 26:12
I will bless the LORD.
Everyone says, "God bless you." It's like the Christian version of "Have a nice day."
Well, here's how to have a nice day: You bless God.
The Bible teaches us to do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Luke 6:31). We could start with God.
Do you want God to say something encouraging to you? You say something encouraging to God. Go ahead.
Do you want God to notice your effort? You notice his. That's right.
Do you want God to give you a reason to smile? You give him a reason to smile. You could tell him a good clean joke. Or, better yet, tell him how good it feels to be clean:
Because the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)
You get the picture, so I don't need to belabor this. Whatever you need, you give God. Don't wait for a blessing when you can create one.
