What Makes You Shout?

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).
