Today is our Canadian Thanksgiving Monday, so I’m taking a break from my regular blog series.
This is the time of year when we express our thanks, but why do we wait so long? We should be thankful 365 days a year, shouldn’t we?
Look where we live. In a country where we’re free to worship our God. We’re free to express ourselves without fear of being arrested. We’re free to share our faith to anyone we want.
But yet, we still seem to take it for granted. I know I do.
We’re rich compared to most countries, but we still want more. Why can’t we be thankful for what we have instead of always trying to have all the latest in technology, clothes, fancy cars, and the biggest houses? We should be content in what we have, but face it. We’re not.
We have food on our tables. We’re not starving like many in other countries. But again, we take it for granted.
Today, let’s show our gratitude to our God for everything He’s given us. Let’s not ask for more.
Let us also express our thanks EVERY day of the year, not just today.
Thank you Lord for all the blessings You bestow in my life. I’m truly grateful. Forgive me when I fail to show it.
What are you thankful for today?
Colossians 3:15 (NIV)
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
