“A spirit of thankfulness is one of the most distinctive marks of a Christian whose heart is attuned to the Lord.” Billy Graham
The Thanksgiving gathering is a perfect place to express our thankfulness not only for the food but for one another. Whether it is around a table or in the course of conversation, remembering and sharing what another has meant to us will warm both the giver’s heart and the receiver’s.
A giving life completes a happy life...
Another way of giving from a thankful heart is to surprise someone with an unexpected kindness - a pay it forward kind of living...
There was a struggling college student who went to the grocery store to purchase food for the week. Knowing that she may not have enough money she was prepared to leave the green peppers if needed. Sure enough, she discarded them telling the cashier that she didn’t have enough money for them. Heading toward her car, groceries in hand, a fellow customer walked up to her handing her a bag and saying, “Here are your peppers.” When she looked up to thank him he was quickly walking away.
Jesus encourages us to give quietly...
When you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Matthew 6:3
LET YOUR LIFE BE FULL OF BOTH
THANKS AND GIVING!
