Less than one week until Christmas and we have heaps to be thankful for! Today I challenge you to ‘count your blessings’ as the saying goes, remember the good things and be thankful to God for them. Christmas is a time of joy and hope and generosity. Hopefully you get to spend time with family and friends and enjoy the summer weather with some time off work. We have a lot of things to be thankful for and ultimately we can be thankful for the gift of Jesus given to us. God gave Jesus and humbled himself to come as a baby to the world. We can express our thankfulness to God by coming to him in worship and recognising the huge sacrifice he gave to save the world through Jesus. How can you be more thankful this week? Make time for God and praise him for giving himself through Jesus. Give thank you cards or gifts to those who have helped you out this year. Be thankful for the things you have and consider giving to those who don’t have as much as you. Give your time to help someone out or honour them. Have a joyful week leading up to Christmas and don’t forget to be thankful!
