1 Chronicles 23:30
(The Levites were appointed) to stand every morning to thank
and praise the LORD, and likewise at evening.

Daily the Levites performed many tasks in the temple of God. Ordinary jobs included baking the special bread used in the temple. Special rituals included preparing for the reverential sacrifices on holy days. Two of their daily appointed jobs, thanksgiving and praise, salted everything, flavoring every mundane task and every traditionally rich service. In thanking and praising God every morning and every evening, even the dullest of their routine tasks became worship.

What a recipe of rich spiritual growth for each of us! Suppose you made a daily appointment to praise and thank God each morning, asking that every task of the day become “salted” with worship? The senior citizen in front of you at the supermarket would become an opportunity to serve and not a temptation to become impatient. A whining child might give cause for thanks that she could cry and you could hear. The fantastic miracle of Christ’s love that you realize on Sunday would not so easily flee from your heart, crushed by the beatings of Monday’s mundane. Each morning appointment with God might cause you to be more cognizant of God’s moving because you would know that daily it is your responsibility to find something for which to be grateful.

So rise, meet that daily appointment of praising and thanking the Lord. Enjoy your newly-flavored walk with Him more fully!
