“And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” -Micah 6:8
What does it mean to give thanks? To offer the Lord a sacrifice of praise? To be sincerely grateful for our lives, both the good and the bad? To honor God with a thankful life of service?
To be thankful means we must be humble, to realize the bountiful gifts and blessings in our lives, the support and presence of our Sustaining God, the gift of grace and forgiveness of our Merciful God, and the invitation to follow Jesus Christ of our Redeeming God.
Thanksgiving always makes me think of Micah and the charge to make the world a more just and peaceful place, to show kindness and mercy, and to walk humbly and attentively with God. We best show our Thanksgiving by our ThanksLIVING.
Blessings and Peace,
