Praise the Lord for His Goodness – Thoughts About Psalm 107:8 for Kids

Psalm 107:8 says: Praise the Lord for His goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men. Here are 20 ways to praise the Lord with your kids.

In Morning and Evening: Classic KJV Edition by Charles H. Spurgeon, this great preacher says, “If we complained less, and praised more, we should be happier, and God would be more glorified.” Thus is the beginning of his commentary on Psalm 107:8, which starts with, “Praise the Lord for His goodness…”

Why is it that “children and complaining” are attracted to each other like a “moth to a flame?” If you have kids running around your home or school, you know this to be true. As parents and teachers, we are constantly fighting the battles of ingratitude and complaining lips.

What is the remedy? I think Psalm 107:8 has at least part of the cure. It says: Praise the Lord for His goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men. 

God is ALWAYS good! And there are an infinite number of reasons we can praise Him for His goodness. If we can s be an example to our children of praising God for His goodness, then I believe God will bless us our families and schoolrooms with His peace and give us grateful hearts.




But what are some of the ways we can praise the Lord for His goodness? More specifically, how can we encourage our children to praise the Lord for His goodness in relationship to the elements of their lives?

Here is a list of 20 ways to praise the Lord for His goodness to get the ball rolling in your homes and classrooms.
