Welcome to day 5 of my “thanks-fest”. If you have joined me on all the previous days to date – thank you! If you have only just joined – where have you been? 🙂
Well, the official Thanksgiving Day is over! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your family and friends.
Perhaps you are now feeling a little sluggish from all that food and drink, and perhaps you are even feeling fatigued with the whole gratitude saga. I hope not. There is only one more day to go of my 6-day “thanks-fest”, so I hope you will bear with me.
I’d just like you to consider one point today.
Have you ever given a gift to someone (maybe a child) and that person had to be cajoled into saying “thank you”. Or have you had someone thank you for something you did, out of a sense of duty or politeness but it lacked sincerity? Not nice is it?
I wonder how our Heavenly Father feels when we treat him similarly?
Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven, for his lovingkindness continues forever.
(Psalms 136: 26 – The Living Bible)
