The Importance of Giving Thanks
The Bible tells us in several places to be thankful. In 1 Thessalonians 5, God’s Word tells us to give thanks in all things. Paul tells us in Philippians 4 to rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS. Do you know where Paul was when he was writing that? In prison…for sharing His faith. That doesn’t seem like a time when I would “feel like” giving thanks.
As a matter of fact, when we don’t feel like be thankful is when we need to praise Him and be thankful the most. Being thankful can help reset our attitude and our perspective as we focus on who He is and what He has done.
We have so much to be thankful for every single minute of every single day. But we often get busy with life and forget to stop and worship Him through giving thanks.
Personally, I am most thankful that God, out of His great love sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to live the perfect life I could not live, die the perfect death I could not die, and then be raised from the dead to show His victory over sin and death. Hallelujah!
Thanksgiving Printable Pack
I am offering this Thanksgiving printable pack for free to encourage you to give thanks!
First up are several pages that help us refocus our attention on things we can give thanks for. You’ll find three “I am Thankful…” options to tell what you’re thankful for. One features four drawing areas for younger learners, one features leaves you can write on, and one is cards you can pass out to guests.
Also included are cards or a page where you can list things for each letter of the alphabet that you’re thankful for. Another option with this one could be to list attributes of God you’re thankful for. For example, A could be Alpha, B could be Benevolent, C could be Christ, etc.
When my kids were younger, we used to take one letter a day and draw/write what we were thankful for.
Second up are Scripture verses and passages that talk about giving thanks in Scripture. Both Old Testament and New Testament verses are included. These are formatted as a one-page “Verses about Thankfulness” or as individual Scripture cards. The Scripture cards could be cut apart and passed out for people to read aloud.
The question I challenge you to think about/answer with each other is: How do these verses encourage you to give thanks to God?
Lastly, are a few pages that encourage you to write thank you to notes to each other. It is a good thing to show gratitude towards each other every day. During the Thanksgiving season, you could write and hide notes for others to “find” and read like we did HERE.
Again, I pray that these printables can be a tool to help you focus your attention on God and thankfulness to Him. To God alone be the glory!
