Praise God Together

Glorify the lord with me; let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:3

I was recently talking to a co-worker about personalized license plates and trying to decipher the message.  I drove in this morning behind a Jeep with the plate “PS34 VS3”.  I wondered immediately what it could be.  Initials?  A score from a sporting event?  A software version? (I do work in technology). 

Finally it hit me – PS = Psalm and VS = verse!  What a fun way to send a message on a license plate.  Then I wondered about how many people would get it.  Are they like me and after a while it will come to them?  If people aren’t familiar with the Bible would they have ever figured it out?  I am certainly curious about the occupation of the person who had this on their car.  Are they a minister?  A worship leader?  A choir director?  Why is this verse so special to them?

Retrospectively, I like to think of this as a secret message between Christians.  In between meetings I have found myself wondering, if I put a bible verse as my license plate what would it be?  What message would I want to send to others?  I always think about sharing the love of Christ with the world – how much harder would that be in 8 characters or less? 

Prayer: Blessed creator, thank you for placing messages of glory in unexpected places. Help me today to glorify your name!
