Our Thanksgiving

With Gratitude in Our Hearts
Text: I Thessalonians 5:12-24
Suggested song: Count Your Blessings
I. The Ten Lepers - Luke 17:11-19
A. I’m sure all ten were happy to have been healed.
B. Perhaps in their joy nine rushed off to tell their loved ones, but only one returned to say “thank you.”
C. We get so caught up in our personal miseries that when they are suddenly gone, we forget to simply say “thank you.”
II. God wants our appreciation
A. Continually offer a sacrifice of praise - Hebrews 13:15
B. Psalm 50:14 - Offer God thanksgiving
C. Come to Him with thanksgiving - Psalm 95:2; 100:4
D. “The World is Mine!” - Dot Aaron
Today, upon a bus, I saw a lovely girl with golden hair.
I envied her, she seemed so gay; I wished I were as fair.
When suddenly she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg, and wore a crutch,
And as she passed – a smile.
O God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two legs, the world is mine!
