God’s grace increases gratitude

“And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory” (2 Corinthians 4:15, NLT).

The First Thanksgiving, painting by Jean Louis...

Today is Thanksgiving in the USA, a day we have set aside for almost 150 years for giving thanks to God for all his blessings. We have many things to be thankful for, no matter our situation in life. But the biggest blessing for all of humanity is God’s grace which gives us freedom from sin, death, guilt and fear. Grace also frees us to live in fellowship with God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit and to experience his kingdom now.

Just as God loves us and lavishes his grace on us, he wants us to treat our fellow human beings in the same way. Living in a grace-filled manner and showing it to others is the best and most concrete way to show our gratitude for his grace toward us. May this day and every day be filled with gratitude to God and grace toward others. Happy Thanksgiving!
