Thank God for His Goodness #568

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. (Psalm 107:8–9, NKJV)

A most common sin is ingratitude toward God. Failure to thank God for His vast goodness is a terrible indictment of one who has been taken over by selfish disrespect. God gives good gifts to us all, from life itself and food to sustain it, to offering us eternal life in His Son. The Lord God does not fail to fill up every soul who longs for His presence and provisions. Since we are the recipients of abundant blessings from God’s hand, let us pause each day to think on His greatness and to thank Him for His goodness. Count your many blessings. Name them one by one and see what God has done.
