The Stones Will Cry Out

When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:
Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
-Luke 19:37-40

God will be glorified” seems to be an immutable law of the universe. Whether because of, or in spite of the efforts of man, God's greatness will be made proclaimed in all creation. That is part of why it is incredible and honoring that God bothers with humans at all. He doesn't need anything from us. He doesn't need our good works, our praise, or our generosity, but he asks for these things in order to include us.

Challenge: Keep your eyes open today. Look for the glory of God is scripture, creation, and in others. Praise God for what you've seen at the end of the day.
