In a recent cartoon of “The Family Circus”, Dolly was teaching her little brother the importance of being thankful. She said, “When somebody gives you something…you wait for them to say ‘And what do you say?’ Then you say, ‘Thank you.’”
Too often we need to be prompted to be thankful to God. We have so much for which to be thankful! Yet we often take these abundant blessings for granted. Thanksgiving should be a natural response to God’s goodness. His blessings, material and spiritual, should cause us to have an attitude of gratitude that pours out constant thanksgiving to God.
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”—Colossians 3:17.
