Thanksgiving Thursday

BE PARTICULAR IN YOUR THANKS TO GOD

“Thank God for making you in His image…

We must give thanks that he has made us reasonable creatures, capable of knowing, loving, serving, and enjoying him, and that he has not made us like the beasts that perish.

We praise you, for we are fearfully and wonderfully made; and that our souls, our nobler part, know very well; for no man knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him.

You have made us of that rank of beings which is a little lower than the heavenly beings and is crowned with glory and honor; for it is the spirit in man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand;  and the spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD.

Our bodies are capable of being the temples of the Holy Spirit, and our souls of having the Spirit of God dwell in them; we therefore glorify you with our bodies and with our spirits, which are both yours.

You, Lord, have formed us for yourself, that we might declare your praise.” (Matthew Henry)
