Day 12 of The Giving of Thanks.
A glass of satsuma juice. This glass of satsuma nectar represents many things for which to give thanks. The FRIEND who grew and shared her satsumas. The GOD who gave seed, sun, water, and nutrients that the satsuma would be there on her tree to pick. The BLENDTEC that juiced the fruit. The GLASS found at a yard sale hosted by Friends. ELECTRICAL POWER to run the Blendtec; resources to pay the bill; and people to work the lines to provide the power. The COUNTER on which the glass sits contained in the house provided by the Hubby who loves me. And there is more but you get the idea. It’s connected and the praise and thankfulness could go on and on. And it should. Happy Thursday, y’all.
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV) 31 Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. source
29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” 30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. source Matthew 26
I am including this passage in Matthew to hopefully stir your thoughts to think of (and perhaps read) these verses in context and what they mean. To think of JESUS – YESHUA. To think of what HE did for you and THANK HIM today. And that you be happily reminded of what is to come for us who love Him.
