We started yesterday by introducing the theme for the month, and we will continue from where we stopped in today’s devotional.
It is important for us to develop a thankful heart. You will never know what life’s sweetness is if there aren’t people in your life to say thank you for what you have ever done. When they say it well, it does something inside you that money can’t pay for.
We should always look for opportunities to say thank you, especially to people that have been a blessing to us on the road of life and say it genuinely. Some countries have a day of thanksgiving. Churches ought to appreciate their pastors and have a pastor’s appreciation service. You should also have a special day you return to say thank you to God in your family. For us in the Dream Centre, we have chosen the last Sunday of the year as the day to say thank you to God for all He has done in the year.
Don’t raise children that don’t respect your God. Let them know the things that you respect. They must be taught that all the things that you have done for them, if not for God, you won’t have been able to do it. Today, you find children of spiritual giants becoming secularized; they are taking for granted what it took their parents tears in the place of prayer to obtain. Educate your children well on this subject of thanksgiving. Don’t let them take the God of their parents for fun.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to develop an attitude of thanksgiving and instill same to those around me, including my children in Jesus Name. Amen!
