Giving Thanks [Devotional]
Devotions ChopChop ^ | November 25, 2008 | Dave Miller (tenger)

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1

This is the week of Thanksgiving Day. It’s a day when families and friends gather round large turkeys with all the trimmings and thank God for what he’s given. I’m sure we don’t do it often enough.

I don’t know about you, but being thankful isn’t natural for me. I like to think that I’m the model of Gratefulness, that every little (or big) thing that comes my way, I’m thankful for. You guessed it, I’m not. But as I’ve stated elsewhere, it’s not always about me. In fact, it rarely is.

We need to be reminded often that we’re not on this earth alone and the things that people do for us should not go unthanked. And of course, God should be thanked as often as we can because without Him we’d be total wrecks!
