I think it is a truism that the more a wise/strong/good-hearted a person is, the more we value praise from that person. Given this, it would make sense that the best person to be praised by is God.


But is God, who is to be praised above all things, and who wants us to never cease in glorifying him, even in the business of praising humans?


Happily the answer is ‘yes’.


Proverbs 31:30


A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.


Wow, God (the ultimate being – through the Proverbs writer) says that it is right and just that a truly God-fearing woman will have good things spoken about her.


Proverbs 19:11


. . . and it is his glory to overlook an offense.


If I didn’t know that this was in the bible, I would say – no – only God deserves glory – but the wise man says – no – humans who ignore that certain people do bad things to us also should get glory from other humans.


Again, wow.


And if you are one of those kinds of people, you can say “Thanks, God!”
