"May the peoples praise you, God;
may all the peoples praise you"
August 9, 2018
The word "love" in English can seem cheapened because we use it to describe not only how much we like a person, but a movie, a shirt, or a restaurant. However, the ancient Greeks had a different word (4 to be exact) for love for different contexts.
For example, "storge" is the Greek word for love expressed within families (mother and child); whereas, "phila" is the Greek word for the love known in friendship.
You've probably heard that explained before; however, did you know that there are 7 different Hebrew words for "praise"? Again, our English language just doesn't have the exact words to express the subtleties and distinctives of some concepts described in other cultures.
Would you like to learn more about these 7 words of praise? Would you like to develop a fuller expression of worship for your love and awe of God? Sunday, August 12th begins a 7 week exploration of worship during our Adult Education time at 11:45 am on Sundays.
Receive insight and encouragement to deepen your praise to the Lord. See you there!
