I thank my God every time I remember you. In every prayer for all of you, I always pray with joy – Philippians 1:3-4
How often do we take a moment to be thankful for special friends and people in our life?
God works through each of us. We all know He wants us to minister to others with love and compassion, to go out of our way with acts of kindness. We should also take some time each day to remember those who have done the same for us.
Think for a moment about those who have reached out to you when you needed it, who had an encouraging word, who showed love even when they didn’t have to. It might be a pastor, a family member, an old or new friend. It might be someone you haven’t even thought of in a long time.
Right now give thanks to the Lord for them and say a prayer. If you haven’t before, maybe today is a good day to encourage them by letting them know what they have meant to you. And if they have already moved on to heaven, then let their memory bring you joy as you know you will also be there with them someday. Be thankful for the people in your life!
