Real Thanksgiving

As Americans celebrated the Thanksgiving Holiday, I’m supposing most Christians took a moment to reflect and to thank God for the blessings He’s lavished on our lives.  I know God appreciates a thankful heart, and my family and I certainly took the time to give thanks and glory to God.  Of course, as a husband and a father, my real desire as the spiritual leader in my home is to have my family understand that “Thanksgiving” isn’t an event, but a way of life.  And just like following Jesus requires action instead of just words, being thankful requires more than a prayer over a turkey dinner.  Being truly thankful for what we have in Christ is portrayed more by how we spend our time, our money, and our waking hours than by how thankful we say we are.  Are you thankful to God for the incredible blessing of new life in Christ?  Now, if I were able to ask all the people who know you, would they say that your thankfulness is obvious for all to see?

“When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made not threats.  Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.  He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.  For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”  1 Peter 2:23-25

Thank God!

In Christ,
