Brothers and sisters: Put on, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do. And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection. And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one Body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
How often do you give thanks to God? Are you grateful for all that He does for you? Do you remember to praise Him? If you are not thankful for all the Lord has done for you, how can you be grateful for what others do for you? Look at your life and see how rich you are in love, wisdom and the joy that comes only from Him. Celebrate that and give Him what is due Him.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I give you all the honor, praise and glory for what happens in my life. Thank you for all you have given to me, I am rich in love, joy and happiness, in Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
