GIVE THANKS…WITH A GRATEFUL HEART
Let (allow) the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
Since as members of one body
You were called to peace.
AND BE THANKFUL.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you
Richly as you teach and admonish one another
With all wisdom, and as you sing psalms,
hymns and spiritual songs with GRATITUDE in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed,
Do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
GIVING THANKS to God the Father through Him.
Colossians 3:15-17 (NIV)
One of the most familiar stories in the Bible regarding thanksgiving is the story of the Ten Men with Leprosy, who were healed by Jesus (Luke 17:11-19). The scriptures share with us that they ALL cried out to Jesus, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” Jesus commanded them to “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.
I have no doubt that upon their healing, they all were elated with joy…perhaps returning to their families, their communities and to their friends. Yet, only one…only one…returned to Jesus to say, “Thank You.”
The focus of our Thanksgiving is not about the gift, but rather the GIVER!
