As we close out this series of “Thanks-Living” I find it funny that it is the seventh installment. Seven in the Bible is the number of perfection or complete.
As I close out this series I have to ask myself, “Am I a thankful person?” Maybe you should ask yourself that question. Now, we both have to answer honestly. This is the painful part of this little exercise in thankfulness.
I am afraid that if the truth be known to us we would find that we might not be as much of a thankful person as what we might want to be. I mean truly thankful. I don’t mean just flippantly throwing out a “Thanks” or “Thank you” on occasion. I mean that we need to be thankful, sincerely thankful all the time.
How much would you do for someone that was not thankful? It would not be too long and you would want to quit doing anything for them. I know. We need to work on being genuinely thankful and doing it all the time. Look at Ephesians 5:20, “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;” I know this is hard for me as I get caught up in circumstances and I seem to lose my thankfulness. God forgive me!
So, how are you doing?
