Giving Follows Thanks

27 Nov

“Thanksgiving”… Two words wrapped into one: “Thanks” and “Giving.” And tonight as I consider this one word it seems only fitting that “giving” follows “thanks” because those who are truly thankful, give.

Consider how you can give back to The Lord this thanksgiving.

It may be simply reaching out to a friend or neighbor and extending a seat at your table.

It may be volunteering to feed the homeless.

It may be paying for the groceries for the person behind you in line at the checkout.

It may be spending extra, purposeful, time with a relative who needs an encouraging touch.

I don’t know how The Lord will lead you, but I want to encourage you to keep your eyes and ears and heart open.

Look for ways to give and give to the glory of God. In this we live out our thankfulness.
