What are you thankful for?
It’s a frequently heard question during the Thanksgiving holiday.
When we reach heaven and look back on our earthly lives, we will be thankful or saddened by the final answer to one question:
Did I give all?
Did I give my all to Jesus as I served my family, co-workers, brothers and sisters in Christ, those less fortunate, and those who did not yet know Jesus?
Did I obey the promptings the Holy Spirit laid on my heart?
Did I listen when Jesus asked me to participate with Him in situations that were:
- Requiring great sacrifice
One song that strikes my heart with this question:
One verse that strikes my heart when I’m tempted to give less than my all:
With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort. – 1 Cor 15:58 (MSG)
One quote that strikes my heart when I begin to think that giving my all is too difficult:
“The world has yet to see what God can do with a man fully consecrated to him. By God’s help, I aim to be that man.” D.L. Moody
This Thanksgiving, answer this question:
What if I gave all?
