Psalm 50

“For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle on a thousand hills … all that moves in the field is mine” (v10-11).  God says that we should not imagine that His perspective is as limited as our own.  Offerings and sacrifices may make others think we are holy, but God sees our hearts (v9, 14).  He does not need our obligatory rituals or money; we need Him, and He wants us to pour out our hearts before Him and give with sincere gratitude for His blessings (v15).

We glorify God both by thanking Him for all He has done and by ordering our relationships and our work according to His ways (v23).
