Don't Forget to Say Thanks
Let us not become complacent in our thanksgiving. There is a danger in having plenty; when all our needs are met, food, shelter, clothing, we tend to settle back and enjoy the extra things God has blessed us with. If we forget the source of our wealth, or even worse, we pat ourselves on the back and take the credit for our wealth, then we have forgotten and ignored God, the source of all provision. We have committed the sin of idolatry.
Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (KJV)
