Praise and Thanksgiving

So often we are like the nine lepers who omitted to thank Jesus for their healing. We pray and ask God for various things and then forget to say thankyou. It might be excused as human nature but it is wrong.

To help my memory I have a ‘thank you book.’ In it I record each day thanks for many answered prayers. There are the daily things to give thanks for, like the sun, rain, a good night’s sleep. And then there are the miracles – healing for myself or a friend. safety in an accident. another soul saved for the Lord. The more I think about it, the more things there are to thank God for. As it is entered in a diary form I can go back and thank God all over again. The psalms are full of thanks and praise. May we be the same.
