REASONS FOR THANKFULNESS

Text: Psalm 107:1

Read: vv. 1–22

“O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.”

INTRODUCTION: Few students of the Scripture would attempt to deny that King David of Israel said more about giving thanks to God than any other writer of the Bible. David seems to “ransack” every area of life in search of a new reason for giving thanks to God.

In this text, David gives his favorite reason for gratitude toward God: “for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever”; that is, God is just in all of His dealing with mankind, and His mercy never ceases to precede His judgment.

AT THIS SEASON WE MAKE MUCH OF OUR PILGRIM FOREFATHERS.

Let us be reminded that God’s people are “pilgrims.”

1. Abraham “looked for a city,” Heb. 11:10.

2. Many professed to be “strangers,” Heb. 11:13.

3. Jesus was the divine pilgrim from heaven, Matt. 8:20.

4. Christians seek their new country, 2 Cor. 5:1.

5. As Paul nears the end of his pilgrimage, he begins to view heaven—the land of the free, and the home of the brave in Christ! 2 Tim. 4:6–8.

SOME THINGS WHICH MAKE GIVING GOD THANKS A MOCKERY:

1. Thanks-giving without thanks-living, Luke 18:11.

2. Giving thanks without paying our vows, Ps. 50:14.

3. Attempting to exhaust our thanks only on Thanksgiving Day—“Thank God always,” 2 Thess. 2:13.

SOME THINGS FOR WHICH WE SHALL BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL:

1. “Thanks … for his unspeakable gift,” 2 Cor. 9:15.

2. Thanks for our eternal “inheritance,” Col. 1:12.

3. Thanks for the victory over death, 1 Cor. 15:55.

The true thanksgiving spirit: “What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord,” Ps. 116:12–13.
