From Justin Childers:
Have you ever thought about the fact that shouting is commanded in Scripture?
Psalm 66:1: “Shout for joy to God, all the earth…”
Shouting is a very undignified thing to do. Important people don’t shout. Prideful people let others do the shouting.
What or who do you shout for? A sports team? In anger? To get someone’s attention?
Shout in joy for God.
I would also add: children, spouse, co-worker, traffic…?
May we never forget these sobering words from Jesus: “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45).
