God: appreciates the thankful heart….
1 Thessalonian 5:18 (KJV) “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
In our lives, saying thank you can be a difficult task especially when we didn’t expect a gift or when it is coming from an unlikely source. Maybe the gesture is unexpected and there is the shock factor; we end up walking away without that important aspect of saying “thank you”.
When we give of ourselves or our time, it warms the heart when the recipient can be appreciative and state it.
Much so, in our relation with God, literally moment by moment He blesses us and thinks of us to do good. Should we not take the time to bless Him in thanksgiving?
I sometimes forget and maybe you do as well, but counting our blessings and giving thanks isn’t much, but it is a big deal in looking at our character.
