Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.– Psalm 106:1, Psalm 107:1, Psalm 118:1 KJV
You know when a mom has to repeat herself the THIRD time, she REALLY means it. I’ll bet God is that way, too. He bothered to say the exact same thing in 3 psalms. I’ll bet He really means that we should give thanks unto Him, for He is good, and that His mercy endures forever.
So if God really means for us to give thanks to Him and to remember His goodness- maybe we should make a daily routine out of it- part of our Christian discipline?
-Make thanksgiving an honest part of the day (gratitude journals, perhaps).
-Remembering acts of God’s goodness toward ourselves or others
-Appreciating our daily need for His mercy in our lives.
