This Month's: Focus of the House 

 

A Message From Bishop Michael

 

IT’S A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD
 

I am not one who subscribes to reserving thanks exclusively on the celebrated holiday – Thanksgiving Day. I do subscribe to the philosophy that every day is a day of thanksgiving. We should offer thanksgiving to the Lord because we are thankful, and without thankfulness, this task would be arduous.

Being thankful implies that we are the beneficiaries of another’s goodness. Understanding and embracing this perspective will prevent us from adopting an attitude of entitlement. Entitled people can’t see the need to be thankful because they believe they rightfully deserve endowments.

Being thankful will also minimize complaints. Complaining usually originates from our constant meditating on what we don’t have. My prayer for us is that we won’t focus so much on what we don’t have and, instead, focus on the blessings we do have. The apostle Paul reminds us in Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of a good report, if there be any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.” He also reminds us in Philippians 2:14, “Do everything without complaining or arguing.” (NLT)

I believe our job is to constantly remind ourselves of the extent of our blessings. We have redemption, forgiveness, sonship, heirship, throneship, justification, immutable promises, angelic protection, divine provision, and eternal life. Yet with all of these benefits, the list goes on and on.

Concur with the psalmist as he declares that it is good to give thanks unto the Lord. Surely, we can find no fault in Him. He has been so gracious to us. Let’s not forget all of His benefits (Psalm 103). For the Lord is good – always has been and always will be. This, my beloved, is incontrovertible! 

In His Name,

Bishop Michael
