Psalm 134 is a call to bless the Lord. It is a reminder of WHY we have gathered together.
Having made the journey to Jerusalem, what will the people of Israel do now?
“Will the temple be a place to socialize, receive congratulations from others on our achievement, a place to share gossip and trade stories, a place to make business contacts that will improve our prospects back home? But that is not why you made the trip: bless God. You are here because God blessed you. Now bless God.” — Eugene Peterson, A Long Obedience in the Same Direction
