All of creation owes its existence to God. “In Him we live and move and have our being,” Acts 17:28. But only human beings can offer thanks to God for life and every other blessing.
Some animals can walk upright. Some even seem to be able to communicate with intelligent language. But, so far as we know, only humans have the capacity to understand that we enter into this world with nothing and leave with nothing. Everything in between is a gift—and worthy of offering thanks to the One who provides all things.
This is one of the many reasons I love the Thanksgiving holiday. I especially look forward to reflecting on the past year and offering thanks to God for his many, many blessings. This is our highest privilege as those created in the image and likeness of God.
When people ask Dave Ramsey how he is doing, he usually says, “Better than I deserve.” That is exactly how I feel.
What are you thankful for? Let me know in the comments section.
TAG! You’re it.
Anything you purchase from Amazon through the EKM site helps to fund EKM Ministries. It does not cost any more than shopping directly through Amazon and if you are a Prime member, nothing changes. It simply gives EKM Ministries a small “finders fee”.
You are not limited to what is on the EKM store site. If you want to purchase an electronic mouse trap, then by all means, purchase an electronic mouse trap.
Click the “Powered by Amazon” button in the top right bar and you will be taken to Amazon. Through here, EKM will still get credit.
Thank you so much for your support and remember to do your Amazon Christmas shopping through this EKM Amazon Store. I just wouldn’t recommend an electronic mouse trap as a gift.
Lord bless you and yours!
