This week most of us will celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a time we gather with our family and friends and hopefully focus on our many blessings. But one day is not enough to remember all the blessings that we receive from our Heavenly Father. Of course, we should be grateful everyday.
Today Rev. Nickles shared a message about gratitude. He read scripture from Chronicles 16:34, Luke 17:11-19 and Philippians 4:11 that teach us that gratitude is an attitude. As children of God we are highly favored and blessed in so many ways that we lose count of all that we receive. We have a loving Father that cares for us, a Savior that died for us, and the Holy Spirit to guide us.
Trials still come our way, but knowing that we have victory through Jesus Christ is a blessing that we can be thankful for everyday. Showing our gratitude in our actions is one way to say thank you to our Lord.
