I recently came across a cute story that I’d like to share with you…
“A Sunday School teacher began her class by stating that everyone has been blessed and should be thankful. Then she asked one little boy for what he was especially thankful. “My glasses,” he replied. That seemed strange. So she asked him to explain. He said, “They keep the boys from hitting me and the girls from kissing me.”
In time, I suspect he will out grow the latter reason for his thankfulness. Don’t you agree?!?! That being said, I bet he will never outgrow…no matter how old he gets, or how much he accomplishes, or how much money he makes...the many other reasons for gratitude. After all, there are thousands of reasons to be grateful.
“And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15
Be thankful for the earth that gives a place to stand, for the sun that gives warmth and light, for the trees that give shade, for the air for breath, for the spouting seeds that give food, for friends who walk by your side and hold your hand, for God who loves you so, for the Bible that gives direction and hope, for Jesus who died on the cross for your sins, for eternal life, and the countless other blessings.
Let’s never outgrow the reasons to be thankful. We serve a good, good Father and He deserves all our gratitude…today and every day!
Happy Thanksgiving & Many Blessings!
