Every day, all around you, are people.
People,who like you and I, need to know they are appreciated. That what they do for others (such as us) is helpful, needed, thoughtful, well done.
They need to hear that thanks.
But this isn’t that kind of thanks I am referring to today…
When someone has blessed us with kindness, grace, an extra hand, unexpected help or blessing…we should thank God for them. In doing so, we acknowledge we care about those around us.
More than just that we need to ask Him to bless them for being a blessing we are thankful for.
When we thank God for those who bless us in our lives, He appreciates the thanks!
And when those in our circle of family, friends, coworkers & acquaintances share their good news, show you care for them by joining their celebration & thank God for blessing them!
And somehow in these thanks transactions…
1. They are blessed by Him for being a blessing.
2. We are blessed through being thankful, more aware of God moving around us.
3. God is blessed and honored with our thanks, whether for what He had given us or someone we know.
As the saying goes, “Win win!”
The next time someone does something worth thanking them for, don’t just thank them in this world. Honor them by thanking God for them in the heavenlies, and invite more of His kingdom down to earth.
Giving thanks is one of the keys for more of His presence!
May the Lord reward you for your kindness… Ruth 1:8
…I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you…
