Overwhelmed With Gratitude

Stand every morning to thank and praise the Lord, and likewise at evening.

1 Chronicles 23:30

At fifteen, Martin Greenfield was seized by Nazi soldiers and sent to Auschwitz, where he was put to work scrubbing Nazi uniforms. When he damaged one of them, he was beaten. “A nice man pulled me aside,” he said, “and taught me how to sew and [to make] a simple stitch. It was my first tailoring lesson.” Martin was eventually liberated by American soldiers, though his family perished. Immigrating to the United States, Martin became a tailor. Today he’s known as the best suit-maker in the America, and among his customers are presidents of the United States. The primary attitude in Greenfield’s life is thanksgiving. “Everything I am or will ever be I owe to God and the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines of the US Armed Forces who fought and died to liberate me…. I am overwhelmed with gratitude.”1

Our Lord Jesus came to liberate us from sin, death, and hell. He equips us to serve Him and uses us to bless others. He clothes us with righteousness. Everything we are or ever will be, we owe to Him. Let’s be overwhelmed with gratitude and say “Thank You” to Him every day. DAVID JEREMIAH

We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction. Harry Ironside

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that you give your thanksgiving and praise to the LORD JESUS CHRIST and keep your discontentment and your dissatisfaction out of your life. by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
