  • Thanksgiving dictates humility before the person to whom one is indebted.
  • The person who is thankful to God sits before God to enjoy His presence.
  • The gracious benefits of God are a cause for joy and exuberant worship.
  • The Lord has dealt with us out of divine love and not as we deserve. This sense of undeserved favor is the wellspring of all thanksgiving.
  • Gratitude has been referred to as the memory of the heart.
  • We need not feel guilty for the plenty we enjoy. But we must be unbelievably grateful for the position in which we find ourselves.
  • Gratitude is the homage of the heart --- rendered to God because of His goodness.
  • God’s greatest gift is not riches but redemption through the blood of Jesus; not food but forgiveness; not safety but a Savior.
  • Thank God He hasn't given us what we deserve but something better; His love and grace…He has given us Himself!
  • Everything that we have and are comes from God. How delighted we are to offer it back to Him and to acknowledge before the entire world that there is nothing that we have or could be that doesn’t come from Him.
