Acts 16:22-34; Psalm 138; John 16:5-11

Sing God’s praises

It would be hard to sing praise just after a severe flogging and being put into stocks! But this is what Paul and Silas did and God was glorified by the conversion of all the prisoners (who had been listening and did not run away to escape after the earthquake) and also of the gaoler. The gaoler believed and he risked his job, perhaps even his life, by taking Paul and Silas to his home to care for them. What might happen if I always praise God, whatever the circumstances? And make sure that others hear those praises also.
