God Gets the Credit

Think about things that are worthy of praise, and then praise them.

You can think about yourself being truthful, and you can imagine objects of beauty. But what is it like to think of something or someone worthy of praise?

When you look at an object of beauty–say, a beautiful painting–do you give credit to the painting for its beauty? Oh, you can talk about the painting and rave about its value as an art object, but you can’t credit the painting for creating itself.

The credit goes to the artist, who painted this thing of beauty. The artists deserves your admiration because the artist is worthy–you can see the result in front of you. The same thing goes for God, the great Artist who created the earth and everything in it. He’s the One who is worthy of praise, not the creation.

So they worshipped the things God made but not the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever. Amen. Romans 1:25
