What do all these verses have in common?
I Corinthians 1:4
I Thessalonians 1:2
II Thessalonians 1:3
II Timothy 1:3
Paul was thanking God for his fellow believers in each of these greetings. Have you thanked God for your fellow believers today? Have you told those people you’re thankful for them?
Today I’m thankful for our friends in our small group. I didn’t get to go Friday because of the birthday party but the ladies did get together Saturday to go to American Harvest’s Christmas open house in Pleasanton. (OK, another small exception to the “no-Christmas-before-Thanksgiving” rule.) But we did search for Thanksgiving decorations and enjoyed the harvest at a farmer’s market, too.
Your homework for today is to read the Scriptures listed above, see how Paul thanked God for the people in the early churches, and then thank some people in your life.Look at all these delicious, nutritious, & creative ways God made to sustain us.
