The Thanksgiving season naturally inspires us to be thankful. Considering the troubling situations occurring in the world, it is good to realize that gratitude also includes peace and unselfed love, as these verses from Colossians 3 make clear:
…let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. (New Living Translation. Col. 3:15-17)
May our Spiritual Activities aid us in following those instructions for expressing gratitude in a way that blesses one another and others.
