“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and bless His name.”Psalm 107:1; Psalm 100:4
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him and bless His name.”
Here in Canada this year, (2021) October 11th is designated as ‘Thanksgiving Day,’ while it is celebrated in November in the United States. But whether we live in Canada or the USA, or in some other country, we all need to be thankful. If each of us would count our blessings, we would find that we all have much to be thankful to God for.
A great preacher, within the last decade, suggested that the mass of people can be divided into two classes: those who take things for granted, and those who take things with gratitude. Which group do we belong to?
GOD’S WORD TEACHES US TO BE THANKFUL
THE DANGER OF UNTHANKFULNESS
WE HAVE SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR
Stop and think – yes, and count your many blessings: We do indeed have so much to be thankful for:
Let us count our many blessings!
Today is a good time to give thanks and to praise Him for all His many blessings.
The hymn writer Johnson Oatman Jr. penned these powerful words –
When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,
When you are discouraged thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.
So, let us be thankful for our many blessings at this special time of the year and always. “Oh, give thanks to the LORD!”
