Psalm 150: Contagious Praise


Here’s a reflection on Psalm 150.  It was written by Chris Altrock.

Psalm 150

Praise is contagious.

Like an epidemic, its location spreads
            from earth to heaven.

Like a pandemic, its motive spreads – 
            from what the LORD has done to who the LORD is.

There’s not an instrument that remains unaffected –
            trumpet, harp, and cymbals are swept up in praise.

There’s not a human or creature who remains immune –
            everything that breathes catches the bug to sing “Hallelujah!”

May no cure ever be found for the contagion that is worship.
