November 13, 2022 – Visible Gratitude
Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22
Can people see how thankful you are? Should they be able to see? Gratitude is an invisible quality, but it seldom remains invisible. Just as God’s love for us is evidenced in a tangible way on the cross, our gratitude to him is evidenced in tangible ways in our lives. Thanking the Lord and offering sacrifices of thanksgiving go hand-in-hand.
Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22 1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble 3 and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south…
17 Some were fools through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities suffered affliction; 18 they loathed any kind of food, and they drew near to the gates of death. 19 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. 20 He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction. 21 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! 22 And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!
