Giving Thanks

This was our church devotional on the website this morning - thought I would share it in light of what today is.

Bible Meditation:
Ephesians 5:20 - "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Devotional Thought:
There are four types of people. There are those who are constantly complaining and grumbling. Have you met any of these folks? I mean, they can brighten up a room just by leaving it. That's the lowest level. Then there are others who live lives of ingratitude. They don't complain, but they never thank God for His obvious blessings. That's a little better, but not much better. Then there are people who thank God for obvious blessings. When something good happens, they're grateful. That's a better level. But the highest level is to be grateful for all things at all times. That is the secret of a happy and productive life.

Action Point:
Bow before the Lord and begin to think about difficult circumstances you're facing. Now, thank Him for each one.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
