The other day I was in a store and I overheard the cashier talking about her new tattoo. She was so proud of her design which she had created herself. As I looked at that tattoo and another one she had previously had put on, I wondered if some time later in her life she might regret having them put on and might want them removed. As I thought about this I was reminded of the comparisons and contrasts these tattoos had with this thing called sin.

Psalm 100 is the song of a thankful heart, a command to worship and serve this God, who made us by entering into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. These praises unto God must be sung from our lips and from the depths of our souls. We must praise the Lord in the place recognized by the world as His court and also within the gates of our secret lives. If there is no praise for our God, then surely our song will not be accepted.
If we think about it, there are many reasons we could come up with to give thanks.
