    Thanks is more than words (Revelation 4:9)

    November 20, 2018

    We give thanks daily for small deeds done for us. But the thanks we give to God comes from a deeper well of gratitude. It begins from the heart. We understand without Him we would not exist. Without Him we would be eternally lost. With Him we have life.

    Thanks is translated from the Greek word “eucharistia”. It indicates grateful language. But it is again more than words. It involves our soul being grateful as well. Mere words are not thanks in the truest sense. Thanksgiving to God always begins in the heart and is communicated through words and action. A thankful life will in turn do deeds for others.
