I know today is a day shared with family. I also know, as is often expressed, this is not the only day we should be thankful. I believe everyone reading this post understands.
Expressing gratitude is a Biblical principle and Paul was one who understood the power of these two words, “thank you.”
Paul frequently spoke of his gratitude on behalf of the activity of his Christian brothers and sisters. He knew the necessity of expressing thanks before a meal, even in the midst of adverse circumstances. Paul was thankful for God’s physical blessings. However, nothing compared to his gratitude for the grace and mercy God had shown him, the foremost of sinners.
There are so many leadership ideas wrapped up in need for gratitude.
For the activities of God’s people…
For the opportunities given by God…
For God’s grace and mercy received in Christ Jesus…
For this day and all it represents in the daily lives of Christians.
I know I am thankful for each of you and I pray for you daily.
