Giving Thanks

Today's reading: 1 Chronicles 16:8-22

With this being Thanksgiving week here in the U.S., I decided to spend today and tomorrow looking at and considering the song of thanks composed and sung by King David when the ark of the covenant was brought to Jerusalem (1 Chronicles 16:8-36). In addition to being quite a beautiful musical poem, it also puts before us various examples of ways we, too, can give thanks to God.

We give thanks to the Lord when we:

  • Talk with Him and tell Him thank you;
  • Tell others the amazing things He has done;
  • Praise Him through our singing;
  • Revel in the name of the Lord and place our confidence in Him;
  • Seek God's presence and strength;
  • Remember what He's done for us as His children.

What would you add to the list above of ways we can give thanks to God? Will you join me in verbally giving thanks to God today? Tami
