Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
(Psalms 100:4 (NIV))
It is much more than a single day in which we have a tendency to overeat and watch football. It is a lifestyle of praise in which we glorify God and thank Him for all that He has given us. It should be a year round choice instead of an event that is limited to a single day.
What do we truly give to God?
Do we willingly give all that we should?
Do we acknowledge God as the source of all of our blessings?
Do we offer up our praise and thanksgiving to God in a manner that will please Him?
It is so easy to stop giving God the praise and the thanksgiving and simply give up a few hours a week sitting in a church. This is not what God wants.
I will praise God’s name in song
and glorify him with thanksgiving.
This will please the LORD more than an ox,
more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.
(Psalms 69:30-31 (NIV))
Is God pleased with your thanksgiving and your praise?
