It is a Good Thing to Give Thanks

“There is no such thing as gratitude unexpressed.  If it is unexpressed, it is plain, old-fashioned ingratitude” (Robert Brault).  Who would be so unreasonable to deny that our gratitude should bLet God Speake expressed to others?

The psalmist wrote, “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,” (Psalms 92:1-2).

First, it is good to give thanks to God because God deserves it.  There is not one good thing you will enjoy today that did not come from God (James 1:16-17).

Second, it is good to give thanks because it benefits us.  When we consider our blessings, we concentrate on what we have, rather than what we do not have; we concentrate on our fortune in life rather than our misfortune.  Giving thanks motivates us to be happy and produces an attitude of contentment.

Today, I will give thanks to God!
