Last week I wrote about being thankful; I said, “being thankful is more than just something we think about in November; it should characterize our lives every day!” I also said I was going to share some of the things I’m thankful for, so . . . while I could write all day about this, I’m going to share just a few of the many blessings for which I am thankful . . .
Well, these are just a few of the many blessings from the hand of God for which I am thankful. Why did I take the time to share these things with you today? I believe we need to regularly take the time to list and thank God for His many blessings. If we do not, we fail to be thankful people; and God tells us to be thankful for everything! If we want the children in our ministries to grow to be thankful people, then this is something we need to model for them. We do this by keeping front and center the many blessings from God; big and small, for which we are thankful.
What are you thankful for? Take time today to write down some of the many blessings from God; big and small, which He has given you and then thank Him for them. Share those blessings with others and commit to be a person whose life is characterized by thankfulness!
