"I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing to You among the nations. For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens and Your truth unto the clouds." (Psalm 57:9-10)
Mercy and truth are only two of the attributes of God that give His people cause to praise Him. In a world that teaches "relative truth" the child of God can rest assured that the truth of God and His Word is steadfast and unchanging. This is exactly why Christians can depend on God's Word to guide their lives. There are those who would tell you that truth is relative to the world view of the person. That statement alone is incorrect. The unique quality of the truth is that it does not require you to believe it in order to be true. The earth has always been round regardless of what men have believed in the past. There are those who believe that there are multiple ways to get to heaven and that virtually everyone is going there when they die. They are going to be terribly disappointed when they stand before the judgment seat of Christ and hear Him say, "I never knew you, depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" (Matthew 7:23) Christ speaks of Himself when he tells His apostles, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." The truth is that there is only one way to heaven and that is through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The great news is that His mercy and His grace are available to everyone who will place their trust in the in the only name under heaven by which men must be saved. That is cause for the heart to sing praises to the Creator of the universe and Who desires to spend eternity with His people. Have a blessed day.
