Give. Thanks. 100x/Day.

 

 "...it is our joyful duty to give thanks to you at all times and in all places...."

 

We are made in the image of a God who gives - generously, abundantly, more than we can ask or imagine.  We are made in the image of an infinietly gracious God whom, in Christ - the fullness of God made flesh - gives himself up for death for us and for our salvation.


Giving is the beginning of grace.


And we are called to be agents of God's grace in this world God so dearly loves.  We called to give of ourselves as Christ gave himself for us - generously, sacrificially and for the eternal benefit of all whom God loves.


To give like that requires reliance on the God who promises that we will have all that we need.  It requires separating oneself from all the things that own you in order belong completely to God.  It requires a giving of your whole self, broken as we may be, in humble reckless abandon to the purposes of God.


The path to such humility is paved with gratitude. So accept the challenge that will change the way you see the world, and find at least 100 different things to give thanks for.  Every day.  Embrace God's gifts however they come to you, and give thanks to the Lord your God.  For our God is good, and his love endures forever.
