Giving Thanks... is it just talk?

Another 'job' we had in church last Sunday was to make a list of things we were thankful for. Jack was right on with this task and it brought a competitive nature out in most of us to make the longest list in the sixty seconds he provided.

I noted on our row, the four of us basically had listed many of the same things.

1. God
2. Spouse
3. Family
4. Church
5. Friends
6. Community
7. Homes
9. Our gifts
10. Our blessings

I think you get the point.  We were all pretty proud sharing that list with each other.

Then Jack had us focus back on topic.  With this wonderful powerful list in front of us and smiles of satisfaction on our faces, Jack ask us how much time did we actually devote to the top three items??   God was first on my list as He was on everyone's list, yet how much time do any of us devote to Him each day?

As you join with your families on this day of Thanksgiving, truly think of those things that are at the top of your list and make a commitment to yourself to make those things a true priority in your life. Make those top things COUNT not by word but by deed.
