Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
The Bible doesn’t say, “Give thanks to the Lord when you feel good or when things are going good”. It says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good”. Giving thanks shouldn’t be based on how we feel, it should be based on who God is, and He is good. There is always something to be thankful for.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Let your light shine by doing good deeds so that others will glorify God. There are many people in need of help right in your own community. Volunteering your time to homeless shelters, food banks or other nonprofit organizations will help people experience the love and goodness of God.
A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
Be kind and generous to others because God has been kind and generous to you. When you’re generous to the poor God will always make sure you are taken care of. Trust in God’s promises and help those in need.
The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.
For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
Every word, every promise, everything He does is right and true. We can have confidence and believe it all because He is faithful. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth. He is deserving of all praise for His truth, faithfulness and mercy.
But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends. For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, his goodness, and our blessings He will get us through it.
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
I want to wish you all a happy and blessed Thanksgiving! Over the past few days I’ve shared with you some of the things I’m thankful for but there are so many I would never be able to express them all. As we give thanks to our Lord on this day let’s remember that He is good all the time and we should be thankful every day of the year. May God bless you today and always.
Today I’m thankful I’m able to spend time with my wonderful husband, family and friends who are such a blessing to my life. What are you thankful for?
