The Bible has a lot to say about giving thanks. We’re encouraged to “give thanks to the Lord” (1 Chronicles 16:34), to pray “with thanksgiving” (Philippians 4:6), and to receive God’s provision “with thanksgiving” (1 Timothy 4:4). We’re also told that our generosity in Christ stirs up responses of thanksgiving in others (2 Corinthians 9:11), spreading gratitude for God outward.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the blessings the Lord has given us and to express our gratitude for His bountiful grace and mercy.
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Reflecting on Our Blessings at Thanksgiving,” Becky Kopitzke will help you do just that by sharing practical ideas for focusing on your blessings:
- Cover your Thanksgiving dinner table with a “Thankful Tablecloth.”
- Send Thanksgiving cards.
- Give gratitude packages.
- Collect donations.
- Start a Thank Prank.
