Scripture of the Week

1 Chronicles 29:11-13 (KJV)

"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.

Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.

Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name."
We devote almost a month to the celebration of Christmas, there are decorations, parties, presents. I am not saying that is inappropriate, either. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. How can you not get excited at the thought of a God that loves you so much, He said aside His Godhood to be born a babe?!
A month for Christmas, and a day for Thanksigiving. Hmmmm.... This month, Scripture of the Week is going to focus on Thanksgiving. this week, have you given God the glory for your wealth and honor? Not rich, you say? Are you reading this on a computer? Did you eat a meal today? Are you clothed, right now? We live in the most affluent time in human history. We are blessed beyond measure. Praise God for all the many things I take for granted on a daily basis! forgive me, Lord, for all the many things I take for granted on a daily basis!
