Doing a New Thing
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!
Last week, the nation celebrated Thanksgiving, a time when families get together and give thanks. Usually this brings the opportunity to eat good food, talk, laugh, watch football, and relax. It also brings an opportunity to reflect on God’s goodness throughout the year. Hopefully you took the time to thank and praise the Lord before taking one bite of turkey. God deserves the highest praise, and we are to honor him. Matter of fact, let us thank the Lord everyday of our lives for his many blessings. Let us not wait for one day a year to give thanks to our Heavenly Father. He shows us his love every day in so many ways. Just the fact that you are alive is enough reason to praise him! As psalmist says, lets enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!
