Thankfulness

Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 8:1-15, 9:7-8,11-15 (day two) When our children were young they had a ‘Thanksgiving feast’ at their school. We wanted the children to realize how grateful to GOD the pilgrims were when they sowed and reaped bountifully because of God’s provision. We see God supplying the seed and bread and multiplying the harvest (9:10). The result is provision and then overflowing through many thanksgivings to God (9:12). The chapter concludes with Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! What are you thankful for because of the surpassing grace of God in your life?  Henry Smith wrote a chorus ‘Give thanks with a grateful heart. Give thanks to the Holy One. Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ His Son, and now let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich because of what the Lord has done. Give thanks!’
