Thankfulness (1)

My friend talked with a man from India. She asked him, “What is the difference between America and India?” The man answered, “People in India have very few things, but they are thankful for what they have. Americans have so much, but they are not thankful.”
For the next few days we will look at some things that we should be thankful for. In today’s Bible verses we see that being thankful is an important part of following and loving God.
Today I want you to think about the people who influenced you to become a Christian. Maybe these people were your parents, teachers, pastors or friends. As you think about these people, thank God for them, and ask God to bless them. Maybe you can call one of these people or send them a note of thanks.
But most important, don’t forget to thank God for His gift of salvation through Jesus!
