Giving Thanks (3)

We know that we should be thankful. But for what things should we give thanks? Today we will look at several Bible verses. These verses give us examples of things for which we should be thankful.
In 2 Corinthians 9:15 Paul said, “Thanks be to God for his gift that is too wonderful to describe.” What is this gift? In verse 14 Paul talked about God’s grace. We should be thankful for God’s grace, given through Jesus.
Our Bible verses say, “I love the Lord for hearing me, for listening to my prayers. Yes, he paid attention to me, so I will always call to him whenever I need help.” Be thankful that God pays attention to your prayers and answers them. James 1:17a reminds us, “Everything good comes from God. Every perfect gift is from him.” Give thanks to God for all your blessings — family, good health, food, clothes and a place to live.
We have many, many things for which we can be thankful. Take time to thank God today!
