As the holiday season is upon us it often can be hard to remember the true reason for the season. We sometimes get caught up in the next holiday, the gifts or even the food; but what we need to stick to is our faith and the reason for our celebrations.
November is here and this is the time to be thankful. However many people skip over this and go right to Christmas… this isn’t something we should get caught in because it is so important to be thankful.
Thankful: expressing gratitude and relief; pleased
What the Bible says about thankfulness…
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
– 1 Thessalonians 5:18
“Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
– Ephesians 5:20
“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.”
– Colossians 4:2
I hope these verses help you as we begin the thankful season! Feel free to ask any questions you may have on being thankful.
