The grace of God and thanksgiving go together. God has given us everything we possess and everything that we are. He is the Giver. Once we realize this, then thankfulness wells up inside of us. How could it not? And as Paul shows us here, it’s not only the grace given to us individually that causes us to give thanks. It’s even the grace given to others. We certainly have much to be thankful for when we look at the gifts of grace all around us. And how do we say thank you to the Lord? In any number of ways – in prayer, in sacrificial giving to His mission, and in imitating His love and kindness to those around us.
