Discover the Joy of Gratitude with the Free “Give Thanks” Email Devotional
Does reading the headlines each day stress you out? Are you already anxious about the hectic holiday season? The Bible instructs us not to spend our lives worrying—but that’s easier said than done. In addition to trying not to worry, is there something active we can do to keep our focus centered on Christ and not the day-to-day grind of headlines and deadlines?
The Bible has practical advice for anyone who wants to live differently:
…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. — 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 (NIV)
This holiday season, choose to do something different. Take a break from angry politics and holiday stress, and rediscover the joy of simple thankfulness. To help you do this, we’ve created a free email devotional that highlights biblical stories of gratitude: Give Thanks, a Thanksgiving-themed devotional that runs the week leading up to Thanksgiving Day in the USA.
Each Give Thanks devotional contains a biblical story that illustrates something important about gratitude and thankfulness, as well as reflection questions to help you think through what you’ve just read. You can enjoy these readings about Moses and Miriam, the Thankful Leper, Hannah, the Prodigal Son, Jehosaphat, Mary, and the Psalms on your own, or use them as the basis for a group discussion with family or friends.
