We are headed into the week where social media will be littered with people proclaiming that they are thankful. As I scroll through posts or hear conversations I can’t help but wonder to whom some of these people are thankful. True thankfulness is more than delighting in something, it’s gratitude toward a giver. It always concusses me when an atheist says they are thankful. In 2 Corinthians 4:15, it says “it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving to the glory of God.” The Greek word for grace in that passage is CHARIS. The Greek word for thankfulness is EUCHARIS-TIAN. You can’t get the word euCHARIStian without the word charis. You see thanksgiving is derived from grace and grace is a gift from God. When God graciously transforms one’s life, the only appropriate response is worship through thankfulness. But we are not thankful to our salvation, we are thankful for our salvation. Be thankful, but make sure your thanks are directed towards the Lord God. PSALM 107:1 ~ Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his steadfast love endures forever!!!
