Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise
Matthew 21:16 - And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
Have you seen a baby cry out to its mother? No mother likes her baby to cry, but if she hears her baby cry out to her, she will immediately run and give relief to her child.
Even when her baby is not in any problem and lovingly calls out to her or even makes attempt to talk to her it pleases her.
When we praise and worship God, it is not that God needs us to praise and worship Him. If God really needed someone to praise and worship Him, instead of us stubborn people God would have made the rocks to call out to Him.
We praise and worship God not because He needs it but because we need it. We know when we call out to Him, we receive relief and when we praise and worship Him, it pleases Him.
You need to understand how important it is to please God, because we and our ancestors since ages have made enmity with Him by our sinful ways.
So let us be like a small babies, not using one's intelligence when calling out to its mother, but from the depth of one's heart let us cry out to our God who is our Father and our Mother and Whom we need. Even in case we do not need help, let us be in continuous communication with our Originator and Giver of life.
