I think that if we as Christians could truly grasp, and fully and consistently internalize, the truth that we are going to live forever in God's presence, along with all the implications of that fact (so that it would become as natural, ever-present, and vital to us as breathing), we would also want to do nothing but continually praise God for the love and mercy that He has shown us in Christ. Unfortunately, our sinful natures (which we will always still have with us in this life), and the cares and problems of this fallen world, can all too often crowd out the joy that we should be feeling. That's why it takes concentrated effort on our parts (along with the help of the Holy Spirit) to always remind ourselves -- even (or especially) in times of turmoil or sorrow -- of what awaits us in eternity.
Singing to the LORD is a privilege He has created us with. He can cause the rock to sing to Him. Instead He made man to give us the honor to worship Him in our singing. When we recognize our little insignificance, we humbly will worship Him with all that we have - in songs, hymns and spiritual songs all our life. This is the least that we can do. Does the LORD need our offering in money, gold or silver? Does the LORD need the goods we can bring to him? He owns everything on this earth. The earth belongs to Him. The man's heart is the one He does not own, but instead He has given to man. When God gives, He respects man's decision. So our only response to such a wonderful and loving God should be giving Him back our lives, our singing, our worship, our ALL.
