Have you ever heard of the #Doxology?  Praise #God from whom all #blessings flow!  Last time, we learned that God provides all His children’s needs.  This week we hear what our proper response should be.  It even ties back to Paul’s theme in Philippians about the Joy of Jesus. Joy in our lives comes from knowing our purpose.  Why are we here if not to glorify God?  Have you ever tried counting your blessings when you are feeling down?  It helps and you should take it further and thank the one who gave you those blessings.  How do we glorify God?  Does all the glory belong to God?  Why is it important to practice giving glory to God now?

Do you need #encouragement today?  Who doesn’t?  If you watch the #news, the spotlight is on #politics, #race, #protests, #riots, and #virus.  But if you know #Jesus as your Lord and Savior, there is a bigger picture.  Paul was telling the Philippians the same thing thousands of years ago.  How can we receive a peace that passes all understanding?  What does gratefulness have to do with our mood?  If you don’t know where to start, let me share with you something I heard in a sermon that has stuck with me.  Our prayers should begin with thanksgiving to the Lord.  What if tomorrow you woke up and only had left what you thanked God for yesterday?  Time is short and windows of opportunity do not stay open long.  What should we do about that?

As we approach a truly American holiday this week, #Thanksgiving, there is a lesson in it for the whole world.  How do I know that it applies to the whole world?  Because it is in God’s Word to humanity, the Bible.  “In everything, give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” I Thessalonians 5:18  What is it about human nature that makes us ungrateful?  How is ingratitude a negative feedback loop?  How do we get out of it?  Why should we make a conscious attempt to be thankful?  Who does it help?  Is there a right and a wrong way to be thankful?
