Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. (Melody Beattie, American self-help author)
Around many dinner tables this Thanksgiving Day, families will be sharing why they are grateful. Some will be grateful for past blessings that have brought them to where they are today. Others are thankful for today—the people they’re around and the joys they are sharing. All of those blessings should be a great incentive to think positively about the future.
The godly are showered with blessings. Blessings reward the righteous. (Proverbs 10:6; 13:21) My cup overflows with blessings. (Psalm 23:5)
