Devotional: Being Thankful
Children's Devotion on Thankfulness
How often do we forget to say, 'Thank You'? Just two little words that say so much. Imagine what it would feel like to give a present to someone, but all they did was grab it and rip the wrapping off without as much as a 'thank you'.
That's how God must feel when we don't say thank you to Him. But there is so much to be thankful for if we'd only stop and look. Here are just a few ways we can say thank you to God each day:
Each morning thank Him for the new day.
Thank Him for the little things so often missed throughout the day.
Thank Him for answered prayers.
Thank Him for all He's yet to do in your life.
Thank Him for the simple fact that He loves you.
Every little thing you have in your life is a blessing from God and something to be thankful for. If you take some time to think about all you have, you'll be surprised at how much there is to be thankful for – because it's not about how much you have or don't have. You may have very little worldly possessions, but still have much to be thankful for. God loves it when we have thankful hearts and will honour that. He looks at the heart, not the outward circumstances.
So give God the thanks He deserves.

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. -
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV)
Lord, I pray I'll always have
A thankful attitude
And see your blessings every day
With a heart of grattitude
