“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” -
Once again, it’s that time of year when we express our thankfulness to God for the wonderful blessings He has bestowed upon our lives in so many ways.
For the most part, we recognize that thankfulness is something that is taught over time. As Children grow, one of the most important lessons we can teach them is to say “thank you”, which of course is a great help to them as they mature and grow.
As God’s children, we too need to have a spirit of thankfulness to our Heavenly Father, and put it into practice as we praise Him for His goodness and wonderful works! A truly thankful child is one who expresses that thanks in word and deed, and I believe we can do this in such a way that it also sets a tremendous example for the generations to follow.
Emerson said that if the stars came out only once a year, everybody would stay up all night to behold them. We have seen the stars so often that we don’t bother to look at them anymore. We have grown accustomed to our blessings.
Let’s never lose the wonder of what God has done, and is doing for us!
