Word and Deed

By   •   November 24   •   Topics: ,

This year as we observe our season of thanksgiving, let us be grateful not only in word but also in deed. Let our gratitude find expression in a resolve to live a life more unselfish and more consecrated to Jesus Christ. When we sit around our tables laden with sumptuous delicacies, let us not forget that half the world will go to bed hungry. As we enjoy the comforts of our cozy homes, let us not forget that great numbers in other parts of the world have no homes to go to.

When we step into our sleek automobiles, let us not forget that most of the people in the world cannot afford even a bicycle. In the Lord’s Prayer as recorded in the sixth chapter of Matthew, we read, “Give us this day our daily bread.” Scripture teaches that the good things of this life are the gifts of God, and that He is the donor of all our blessings. Thanksgiving? Yes. Let us get on our knees humbly and thank God for the blessings He has given us, both material and spiritual. They have come from His hands.

Read this story and learn how to be thankful in all things.

Prayer for the day

You bring me such abundance, almighty God. As I think of Thanksgiving Day, may my heart be completely consecrated to Your Son, Jesus Christ, so that through Him my life will show my gratitude to You.

    We have a tendency to lose perspective on the fact that we were born here in THE UNITED STATES and not in Bangladesh or remote part of Africa, this fact should motivate us in helping those who are less fortunate then we are, and also pry that God Willing, Billy Graham would recover from his stay at the Hospital

    In addition to the numerous Blessings, we must also be thankful to our Heavenly Father for the countless things he does that we are not even aware of….. Protecting us from hidden dangers, sparing us from serious injury and much more.
