Thankfulness – The Power to Shape
This weekend we’ll be gathering with family and friends, either safely in person, or via video, but whichever way you gather, the central focus for us is thanksgiving. The words, thank you get tossed around quite a bit in our day-to-day conversations, so much so, that it is can almost be synonymous to our reply ‘fine’ when asked how you are. Something like…“Hey man, thanks so much!” “Thank you” “Thx”
Interestingly enough is the fact that thankfulness and its many variations are peppered throughout all of the Bible. But did you know that thanks or thankfulness is more about an inward perspective on life than a response to a favour received? Thankfulness is a heart-response of love to God, and to all other people.
