SCRIPTURE: Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 118:1
Last week I received this beautiful Thank You card. Inside of the card it says, "Your ministry is such a blessing because you have a wonderful way of bringing others into His presence. Thank you for your ministry." It really made me feel good that someone took the time to go and buy this card and send it to me to say "Thank You." Sometimes people forget to say "Thank You" when someone does something nice for them.
One time there were ten people who were very sick with a terrible disease called leprosy. When Jesus saw them, He touched them and they were healed. They were so happy that they ran up and down the streets singing and dancing. One of them stopped and went back to tell Jesus, "Thank You." Jesus said to him, "Weren't there ten who were healed? Where are the other nine?" Only one out of the ten said, "Thank You."
God does so much for us! Every day he provides everything we need: food, clothing, and a place to live. Do we ever forget to say, "Thank You?" Let's stop right now and say "Thank You" and ask Him to help us remember to thank Him every day.
Dear Lord, you give us everything we need, but we often forget to say "Thank You." We thank you now, and ask you to help us to remember to give thanks every day for all that you give us. Amen.
