As we approach the holiday season, we are reminded to give thanks for what we have.
As one person said to me recently, we should have Thanksgiving more often so people can appreciate what they have more.
I agree that being thankful isn't just a one day event, but a daily outlook.
This is a quick video of saying thanks in different languages: http://vimeo.com/2381282
Here are a few verses I found through Bible gateway, I'm thankful for that helpful resource:
1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
2 Chronicles 5:13
The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the LORD was filled with the cloud,
With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the LORD: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the LORD
I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High.
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples...
Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened
Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
1 Corinthians 10:16
Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”
I hope you have an awesome holiday season and find deeper meaning in what we celebrate <3
