107:8 Let them praise Hashem for His steadfast love
In this beautiful psalm, King David describes the joy of seafarers who have been delivered from peril at sea. Upon arriving safely at port, they would publicly express their thanks to Hashem. Sharing the miracles in our lives with others, however big or small, leads more people to gain awareness of God’s intervention in the world. Additionally, it opens our own eyes, enabling us to focus on the good and to see the many blessings we receive from the Lord each day. God’s involvement in our lives is especially acute in the Land of Israel, “a land which Hashem your God looks after, on which Hashem your God always keeps His eye, from year’s beginning to year’s end” (Deuteronomy 11:12).
