Importance of thanksgiving to God – Prayer for June 20. God has done so much for us that we need to give him thanks.
Bible Verse for Today
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto your name, O most High: To show forth your loving kindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night. (Psalm 92:1-2)
It is good to show some appreciation. If someone helps us with something and we appreciate it and give thanks, that person would be moved to help next time. But if otherwise, we might not receive any help from the same person because he will tag us as ungrateful.
So also God, when we show the heart of thanksgiving, he would be moved to bless us more. Ten lepers were healed by Jesus Christ when he went to Jerusalem. Out of the ten lepers, only one came back to give thanks. Luke 17:16 “And he fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.” The thanksgiving that this leper gave to Jesus made him completely whole.
Giving thanks should not be limited to when everything is bubbling or in good shape but also when things are in bad shape. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
