Reflections: A Reason to Give Thanks

2 Corinthians 4:15-16

15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

Thanksgiving is a time and season to remember God’s many blessings on our lives. We take great joy in being part of God’s family, and participating in His amazing ministry for the world. During this special season, let’s remember to give thanks to God for everything; our blessings, our trials, and our opportunities.

Reflection Questions:

Please read and think about each question as it applies to your Christian journey with Christ.

  • What are you most thankful for this day? How can your worship to God express your thanks?
  • Have you ever considered your trials a blessing, or an opportunity for ministry?


Lord, you are more generous and more loving than we could ever imagine. Let us not waste our time, talents, and treasures on ourselves, but rather, let us use all of our blessings for your work in this world. Let the way we serve be a testimony of our gratitude for all you have done. Amen.
