We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too. -1 Thessalonians 2:8
When I take a few moments to reflect on what I am most thankful for, this passage of scripture seems to capture it best…the Good News and God’s greatest creation, people. Without the transformation of my heart through my relationship with Jesus Christ, my life would be empty. God has saved us by His grace, not because of anything we have done but because He first loved us. When we allow God’s good news to fill our hearts, we see people as God sees them…with love and compassion.
This Thanksgiving, I am praising God for His love and each of you because He has allowed our friendships and relationships to grow deeper and more meaningful with each passing day. I thank God for you and pray that your heart will be full of joy and Thanksgiving for what He is doing in your life and for the people He has allowed you to share life with.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!
