2 Thessalonians 2:13 (NRSV)
But we must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth.
On this day of thanks it is appropriate to give thanks for God’s chosen. Think of all those in our lives and who have come before us God has chosen. If it wasn’t for God’s chosen we would not have the fellowship, friendship, and families we have. If not for God’s chosen we would not have the pastors, prophets, teachers, and leaders we have. Just take a moment to give God thanks for all the God loving people who have loved you, influenced you, fought for you, and inspired you.
Lord I give you thanks for all those you have surrounded me with. I give you thanks for provision and for providers. I give you thanks for you.
