The Best Regift

What if each time someone celebrated my skills

Or expertise,

re-gifted the applause to the Father

Instead of desiring an encore ovation? 

What if each time someone praised my wisdom

Or education,

returned the accolade to the Lord

Instead of celebrating with a personal party?

What if each time my child scored a goal, made the grade,

Or won an award,

restored the admiration to His Name

Instead of attempting to build my own?

What if I genuinely regarded all praise given to me

As a gift to present to God, Who created everything?

May my praise be offered, not simply in word and song, 

But sacrificed, in deed and truth.
