He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me (Psalm 50:23). Thankfulness ought to be the prime characteristic in a Christian’s life. During the Thanksgiving holiday, we focus on our blessings and express our gratitude to God for all that He’s provided. However, thanks should be on our lips every day.

We can never say thank you enough to parents, friends, leaders, and especially to God. When thanksgiving becomes an integral part of your life, you will find that your attitude toward life will change. You will become more positive, gracious, loving, and humble.

Psalm 92:1-6 says, “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening. You thrill me, Lord; with all you have done for Me! I sing for joy because of what you have done. O Lord what great miracles you do! And how deep are your thoughts, Only an ignorant person would not know this! Only a fool would not understand it.”

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting” (Psalm 107:1). I give thanks for your gifts to Madelene and me for pastor appreciation.

There are three significant aspects of thankfulness: (1) remembering what
God has done, (2) telling others about it, (3) being willing to offer gifts of self, time, and resources as a sacrifice to God. If you are truly thankful, your life and your lips will confirm it.

For His Glory,
