Hands speak a language of their own, don't they? Hands held up can mean praise or even surrender. Hands held out with palms up can either mean I am giving this to you, or you are giving something to me. Hands that are closed can mean a sign of aggression as it forms a fist. You get the idea. So as we approach worship, I encourage you to live with open hands. It is only with open hands that we can give something away, but is also only with open hands that we can receive. Worship is you and me giving our hearts in praise to God, but He is gracious in that He blesses us in return for our praise. Isn't that just like God? He is always giving. So worship the Lord with open hands…ready to give, ready to serve. You never know what blessings God will put back in to those open hands of yours.
