He Gave Thanks

[121 words]

Ten times in the gospels, Jesus is recorded as giving thanks mainly at the Lord’s Supper and some other meals. The Lord gave thanks before He fed 4,000 (Mark 8:6). He gave thanks to the Father for hearing Him (John 11:41). We also should give thanks when we eat (Rom. 14:6). Thankfulness is an attitude of gratitude. A thankful person is a “tank full” person. Such a person is full of good thoughts and appreciation. It is so much easier to work with someone who is thankfuL rather than ungrateful. It cuts out a load of griping and whining. It brings out praise and good ways instead. He gave thanks; therefore I need to learn to give thanks.
