Giving Thanks
 
  • Theme: Giving thanks to God for His blessings.
  • Scripture: Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100:4-5
  • Memory Verse:. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100:4-5

We have a lot to be thankful for, don’t we? What are some of the things you are thankful for? (give the children some time to name some things) Who should we thank for all that we have? That’s right, we should give thanks to God. The Bible tells us that every good and perfect gift comes from God. When someone gives you a gift, you say, “Thank you.” When do you think we should say, “Thank you” to God? Should we have one day each year that we give thanks? Should we have one day each week that we give thanks? I think EVERY DAY should be a day of thanksgiving. Don’t you agree?

Our Bible lesson today says:

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Let’s stop right now and give thanks and praise God for all he has done for us.

Lord, we thank you for your for all of the good gifts you give to us. Most of all, we thank you for your love and for the gift of your son, Jesus. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
