November’s daily verses to read and pray are all about, you guessed it – GRATITUDE!  

The other day my son asked, “Have you ever noticed that so many of the morals of our stories are about being thankful?”  I asked him why he thought that was and if maybe it had to do with the fact that children need to constantly be reminded of being grateful!

We find the theme of gratitude is one that comes up over and over as we read our Bibles as well, doesn’t it?  From the big to the “small” moments or victories and from the important to the seemingly “less important” people, we see example after example of giving thanks to God.  We read command after command to be grateful: in all circumstances, at all times, for all things, and for all people.  (Perhaps it has to do with the fact that we ALL need to constantly be reminded of being grateful!)

If that seems too challenging, it only takes one look at Jesus and His example (as always) to remind us that in Him, circumstances need not dictate gratitude.  Looking ahead TO the cross, He gave thanks.  Surely, even in the midst of our troubles and difficulties, looking AT the cross, we will find there is always, ALWAYS something to be grateful for as children of God.

Will you join me this month in praying over our hearts and the hearts of our families that we would be a people who don’t just “celebrate” Thanksgiving, but rather live a life of purposeful thanks-giving?  If so, consider saving or printing November’s verses to read, contemplate, discuss, and pray throughout the month.

“Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it.”  A.W. Tozer
