Be Thankful

I decided to do a search through the Bible for things we should be thankful about today (obviously everyone has their own personal list of blessings.  This is just a general thing here)

Psalm 7:17
I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High.

Psalm 106:1
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalm 107:15
Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind,

Psalm 118:19
Open for me the gates of the righteous; I will enter and give thanks to the LORD.

Psalm 118:21
I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.

Romans 1:8
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world.

Romans 6:17
But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance.

1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 1:11
…as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.

Ephesians 5:20
always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

The last verse sums it up well.  We should be giving thanks to God for EVERYTHING.  I think often we are thankful, but forget to actually thank God for it. So while the day goes by and you see your family and friends and tell them what you’re thankful for, don’t forget the One we owe the most to.  Say thanks to Him as well.
