"Giving THANKS always for all things unto God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."  (Ephesians 5:20)

A great deal has been written about the virtue of forgetting old grudges, prejudices, unpleasant experiences and heartaches. We also need to be reminded of some of the blessings of remembering. Remember­ing can be good spiritual exercise.                                     

At Thanksgiving we need to:

Remember OUR SINS that we might con­fess them to God.

Remember OUR WEAKNESSES that we may receive strength.

Remember OUR HUMANITY that we might stop trying to be God.

Remember GOD'S MERCIES that we might be merciful to others.

Remember OUR JOYS that we might be joyful.

Remember GOD'S GREATNESS that we might be humble

Remember OUR POVERTY that we might share our prosperity.

Remember GOD'S FORGIVENESS that we might forgive others.

Remember OUR NEEDS that we might serve the needs of others.

Remember JESUS CHRIST that we might grow to be more like Him.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, (Ephesians 1:3)
