Thoughts From Colossians 3:17

“And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.”
Colossians 3:17 NLT

Did you know that every day is Thanksgiving for a believers, at least, it should be. We certainly have more than enough to be thankful for. We don’t need to look far for God’s blessings in our lives. They are all around us: a place to live, a loving family or someone to care for us, supportive friends, food to eat, clothes to wear, assorted talents and abilities, the security of knowing we will go to heaven when we die, that’s just to name a few.

We have the material for a 365-day Thanksgiving celebration, but do we have the desire? After all, life gets busy. More important things come up. Right?

Actually, they don’t. If we are serious about our relationship with God, nothing is more important. We just need to rethink our schedules. How can we carve a little time out of every day to think about what God has done for us and tell him how much we appreciate it? One idea is to keep a running conversation. As good things come up, we can thank God for them. When we solve a problem or do well on a test, we can thank Him for our reasoning skills. When we assemble with other believers, we can thank Him for living in a place where we are free to worship him.

Folks, we can learn to appreciate every moment and share our appreciation with the One who made it possible.
