  • “In everything give thanks” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

    Gratitude works like a vaccine; it keeps you from getting infected with a spirit of “grumpiness.” It’s the anti-toxin that counteracts the poisonous affects of ingratitude.

    Have you noticed that we live in a thankless society? Paul said, “In the last days . people will be … ungrateful” II Timothy 3:1-2.

  • What do you think of when you think of Thanksgiving? Is it eating, football, shopping on Black Friday or some other item?

    Thanksgiving is not just food, football and family. For God’s people, every day ought to be Thanksgiving Day.

    Thanksgiving Day is a distinctive holiday. It does not commemorate a battle or anyone’s birthday. It is simply a day set aside to express our gratitude to God.
