Series: The Art of Thanksgiving

We continue to paint the picture of thanksgiving with the series, The Art of Thanksgiving. In our lives there is a constant drain of gratitude from our spirits. We see it, not only in ourselves but also in the world around us. A feeling that we deserve more has filled our society, yet there is nothing that can fill the void that we experience. This feeling leads us to anger and frustration! Giving thanks to others and especially to God has a much more positive outcome! Instead of emptiness we find fullness; instead of anger we find compassion; instead of frustration, we find grace. Psalm 100 is great example of the power of giving thanks! In the sermon, Highlight with Praise, we see how we can find a genuine thankfulness and gratitude that shares with us a fullness of lasting joy! Let this joy lift you as you read Psalm 100: Psalm 100:1-5 For giving grateful praise. Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. 2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. 3 Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name 5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.(NIV)
