Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
at all times and in all places. In this new season of life at Incarnation, let’s take time to acknowledge all the Lord has given us and begin to define a spiritual practice of gratitude.
As Christians, our entire lives are to be characterized by gratitude—gratitude for the ways God has provided for us in this life and, above all, gratitude for God’s unfathomable generosity in giving his only Son so that we might have life in him. Where would we be without God’s unearned grace? Where would we be without the many ways God has fed and guided us through other people?
