Cultivating a Thankful Heart

On Sunday I was privilidged to stand at the front of the sanctuary as people began to share their thanksgivings with one another.  What began as a small rumble became louder and louder until there were hundreds of voices expressing their thanksgiving.  It sounded to me like a jumbled roar of noice.  However, upon reflection, I think it sounded to God like a beautiful symphony.  A chorus of thanksgiving.  An offering of thanks given by our church in honor of our magnificient God!

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” (Colossians 4:2)

    Yesterday was awesome! What else could be said except, “Amen?”

    Thank you for the good preaching and leading us into gratefulness. I think you are right that if we can only keep it in our hearts it can and will change us from the inside out.

    Now get some much needed rest brother!
