I’m sure you’re polite. Well brought-up.
When someone gives you something you say ‘thank-you’.
Yeah, yeah, we all know that.
Maybe you were brought up having to write thank-you letters.
In fact I recently came across an article from a couple of years back. Christmas Day tweets from
people ungrateful for their presents. I couldn’t believe it:
“I can’t believe my mum got me the white iPhone and not the black one”.
“Didn’t get my car so I’m not feeling Christmas”.
Silly question time – do you say ‘thank-you’ to God at Christmas time?
I don’t mean, do you go and sing some carols. I don’t mean, do you feel good cheer. I don’t mean, do
you have a sense of warmth about you.
I mean do you really Pause. Reflect. Chew over. Meditate upon. Stop. Take time out. And worship.
“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift” (2 Corinthians 9:15).
