GIVE THANKS
Posted : Thursday October 9th, 2014

In his letters, the apostle Paul helped his readers to develop a theology of Gratitude.  He wrote about thanksgiving more often than any other new testament author.

From the 23 times he used the word, we learn a few lessons about thanksgiving.

 

Thanksgiving was always directed toward God and never toward people.  People were gifts from God and Paul thanked God for their growth, love, and faith. (1 Cor 1:4, 1 Thes .1:2)

 

Thanksgiving is given through Jesus for everything (Col 3:15, 17, 1 Thess. 1:2) Paul believed followers of Jesus could be thankful for everything because God is sovereign and He is working things out for the believer's good. (1 Thes. 5:18)

 

May we intentionally be aware of God's gift all around us, and respond with gratitude.  In response to God's gifts, its natural to, "Thank you Lord."

 

Think of on thing you are thankful for and give God the gratitude.

 

Be Blessed
