Doxology


It’s a song that is familiar to many of us. In the traditional service we sing each week: “Praise God, from whom all blessings flow. Praise God, all creatures here, below. Praise God, above, ye heavenly hosts. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.” We call it the “Doxology.” Doxology derives from the Greek words doxa (glory/praise) and logia (word). Literally, doxology means “a word of glorification” or “a word of praise.”

Every day of our lives can and should be a tapestry of praise woven with the priorities, choices, actions, words, and thoughts that we spin in the countless moments of our days. This includes how we use our finances, which we often call “stewardship.” Stewardship is always more than money, but it’s never less than money. At the same time, doxology is always more than money, but it’s never less than money. As the Doxology reminds us, God invites us to praise him with all our blessings. The whole of our lives should be lived in doxology.
