Max Lucado – Thank God—Every Day for Everything

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

A person never runs out of reasons to say “thanks!”  Just the word lifts the spirit!  To say, “thanks” is to celebrate a gift.  Something.  Anything.

In Scripture the idea of giving thanks is not a suggestion or a recommendation; it’s a command.  It carries the same weight as “love your neighbor” and “give to the poor.”  More than a hundred times, either by imperative or example, the Bible commands us to be thankful.  If quantity implies gravity, God takes thanksgiving seriously.

Ingratitude is the original sin.  Adam and Eve had a million reasons to give thanks.  They lived in a perfect world.  Then Satan slithered into the garden and just like that, Eden wasn’t enough.  Oh, the hissing we hear.  “Don’t you want more?”  So thank God.  Moment by moment.  Day by day.  Thank him…for everything!
