Eternal Perspectives

The sole justification for praising God is that God is praiseworthy. We do not praise God because it does us good, though no doubt it does. Nor do we praise Him because it does Him good, for in fact it does not. Praise is thus strictly ecstatic. . . . Praise is entirely directed upon God. It takes our attention entirely off ourself and concentrates it entirely upon Him.
~ E. L. Maskell, Grace and Glory
