Gratitude (Colossians 3:15-17)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “gratitude.” Yeah, I know this one is a bit self-explanatory. But really, think of how many times we forget to give thanks to god and have heart set on all the cool stuff God does for us. Whether stuff is going well or is totally jacked up in our lives God always seems to be there, you know… the Apostle Paul even had to remind his peeps from time to time that they needed to turn their hearts toward God in thanksgiving.

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”
~Col. 3:16

That is pretty sweet! I guess my question for you today is: What are the things in your life for which you should have gratitude? Take a moment and think about them… then thank God for making you who you are. Gratitude should fill our hearts. My prayer for you today is that God would fill your hearts with singing, praise and wonder at the works of the Lord.

Praying for you,
