Thursday is a nationally declared day of thanks in the USA. But does declaring a day produce a grateful heart? The Word of God does more than set aside a day - it commands a continual practice of gratitude to God . . .

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." (1 Thess. 5:18)

"Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving." ( Col.4:2)

"Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Cor. 15:57)

"And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, "Were not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?" (Luke 17:15-17)

"Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands ... enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good." (Psalm 100:1,4-5)

And here is one for after you eat on Thursday - ""When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which He hath given thee." (Deut. 8:10)

OK, I took that last one out of context, but I trust you will have an enjoyable day to the praise of your Saviour Jesus Christ!!
