Be Thankful

It is exciting to acknowledge and give thanks to God.  These believers in Zambia gather around desks that have been provided for their children’s school to give thanks to God.

Each day we are showered with blessings beyond that which we can count.  These blessings include life, health, food, clothing, housing, transportation, friends, money, water, heat, air-conditioning, direction, protection, wisdom, and many more.  It is easy just to take all of these blessings for granted and forget the goodness of God. Don’t forget James 1:17, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

A thankful attitude opens the daily door of life to see the gracious hand of God in new and refreshing ways.  In a world of convenience and easy access, one is often caught up in self-reliance and self-sufficiency which crowds out thankfulness to God.

Take a few moments now to thank God for His blessings in your life.
