Meditation:

Gratitude is the praise we offer God: for teachers kind, benefactors never to be forgotten, for all who have advantaged me, by writings, sermons, converse, prayers, examples, for all these and all others which I know, which I know not, open, hidden, remembered, and forgotten – Lancelot Andrewes

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich. It is very easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements in comparison with what we owe others. – Dietrich Bonhoeffer



Responsive Reading: Give Thanks to the Lord (SDA Hymnal #702) - Laura and Erika Sormin

Sermon Notes:

Thanksgiving Day is over and done. Are you still feeling full?! I hope the one thing that lingers
is that at this time of the year, our thoughts turn rather naturally towards gratitude. Along
those lines, I offer you the following thoughts from two writers.

“The worst moment for the atheist is when he is really thankful and has nobody to thank. The
converse of this proposition is also true… The great saint may be said to mix all his thoughts
with thanks. All goods look better when they look like gifts… It is the highest and holiest of
the paradoxes that the man who really knows he cannot pay his debt will be forever paying
it… He will be always throwing things away into a bottomless pit of unfathomable thanks.” –
C. K. Chesterton

“To be grateful for the good things that happen in our lives is easy, but to be grateful for all of
our lives—the good as well as the bad, the moments of joy as well as the moments of sorrow,
the successes as well as the failures, the rewards as well as the rejections—that requires
hard spiritual work. Still, we are only truly grateful people when we can say ‘thank you’ to all
that has brought us to the present moment. As long as we keep dividing our lives between
events and people we would like to remember and those we would rather forget, we cannot
claim the fullness of our beings as a gift of God to be grateful for. Let’s not be afraid to look at
everything that has brought us to where we are now and trust that we will soon see in it the
guiding hand of a loving God. – Henri J. M. Nouwen

Happy Thanksgiving!
