In an article in Leadership Journal, Gordon MacDonald writes about taking his 3-year-old grandson to Chuck E. Cheese’s for pizza and fun. On the way home, Gordon and his wife tried to get their grandson to say “thank you” to his Papa for treating him to such a fun evening. In spite of their efforts, the little fellow refused to say anything at all. Finally, he spoke up and said, “I’m thankful, Papa; I just don’t want to say it.”
Our heavenly Father longs to hear us express our gratitude for the many blessings he gives us every day. However, too often we are slow to say “thanks”.
Make sure you spend some time thanking him today.
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”—1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
