PrayFit devotional: A Thankful List: Nov 19, 2012; Read: 1 Thessalonians 5
“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” –1 Thessalonians 5:18
Do you like lists? I love lists. My wife and I can be driving, and all I have to say to her is, “Give me your top three for dinner” and she knows I’m asking her to name me the three people she would love to have over for a meal. Without hesitation, Kate Winslet, Dr. Charles Stanley and Derek Jeter are scooting their chairs under our table. We’ve done things like that for years. And don’t get me started about New Year’s resolutions. We’ve saved every list of resolutions for 18 years. Not only that, we witness, sign and ratify them. (I wish I were kidding). What can I say? I love lists.
Do you have one? A list of things for which you’re the most thankful this year? What better week than this to consider it. Could be a friend, or new job or maybe your health has improved. (That last one would make mine, FYI.) Take a minute to think of, or better yet, jot some things down. Use our comment section if you’d be so bold. What are you the most thankful for as you look back on this year? Give me your top three. And if you say Derek Jeter, I just might have you over for dinner. –Jimmy Peña
P.S. God has a list, and we’re on it. You and I will be sitting at His table someday if we say yes. The invitation is open. It’s up to us to accept it. www.prayfit.com/2012/11/
