Philippians 1:3-6 (ESV)
3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Thank you notes. Such a simple gesture. You have likely gotten a variety of thank you notes. There are the ones from your students that are handmade and full of their love for you. You may get notes from parents that express their gratitude for your loving attention to their child. You may get a thank you note from a fellow worker for a job well done. While it may be simple, a thank you note can encourage and touch the hearts of the recipient.
We thank God for the blessings of relationships built and strengthened through out the year. Philippians 1 is a wonderful reminder for us to also take the time to stop and thank God for those with whom we work and serve. Those individuals may be at our church, work, kids sporting events or at the local grocery store. We may not even really know them. But a simple wrd of thanks can make the world of difference.
So today take a minute and send a thank you note of prayer. Then write a quick note and send it off to someone that you appreciate today.
Today I send a special thank you note of prayer to God for each of you my friends for the encouragement you always send my way.
Dear Lord, we thank You for the privilege of sharing Your gospel each day. We thank You for those You bring into our life. Help us to always take the time to thank them and let them know that they are special to us. In the Name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
