(2 Corinthians 9:15)
The story is told of a man who was hired as a part-time worker for the US Post Office in a small town. It seems, as a part-timer, he was assigned to sort through the letters to Santa Clause which over load the regular clerks. For a few weeks, he read many of the letters requesting this or that… how many … what size and color, most were quite demanding and even listed how “good” they had been and deserved Santa’s rewards.
As the weeks went on, Christmas came and went, and the young man was assigned to the dead letter office. He found only one letter to Santa and read it. He was greatly surprised as it was actually a “thank you” letter expressing how delighted the youngster was and heaped thanks upon Santa for remembering him during his busy season.
How like these children people are today! We so often request and beg of God but so often neglect to thank Him for answering and meeting our needs.
Even the nine lepers did not return to thank Christ for making them clean. Only the one returned and gave thanks. (Luke 17: 12-19)
Let us take time, now at this Thanksgiving Season and daily, to remember and thank Him as Paul records in 2 Corinthians 9:15.
“Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift” thanking God for the wonderful, blessed Savior, Jesus Christ!
