Hidden Nuggets Series #65 – “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For his mercy endures forever.” – I Chronicles 16:34
We often forget how many things there are to be thankful for. It’s our tendency to slip into negativity mode and have the worries and frustrations of life overshadow all the blessings we enjoy. Doing that often enough will produce a continual spirit of ingratitude.
I have to be reminded of this on a daily basis and the source that constantly prods me to consider the concept of thankfulness is the Bible.
During this Thanksgiving season, I’d like to share with you my favorite verses about giving thanks from the Bible. Most are simply stand alone verses expressing thankfulness to God. King David was really good at that, as you will see I have multiple selections from the book of Psalms (there are many more I didn’t list). Several verses that are listed you might recognize as being part of a bigger story being told.
I won’t comment on why I appreciate them…I’m just thankful Bible verses like this exist to keep me thinking the right way.
