Most of us are what we are today because of our parents. Their love and devotion gave us the start in life. When we think back over the years we will no doubt be able to remember some of the sacrifices they made for us. We have so much to be grateful for.
Our Father in heaven did it all for us as well - with one major difference. The sacrifice of His son, our Lord and Saviour, sets us up for eternity. Paul puts it this way. "For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever!" (Romans 11:36)
We have so much to be thankful for.
If your parents are still alive, take time to thank them today. Pick up the phone and do it. Then take the time to thank your heavenly Father as well.
Have a thankful Friday.
