This Thanksgiving, Don’t Forget to Be Grateful for the Little Things

In the Christian faith we focus – quite understandably – on the awesome truth that in the crucifixion of Jesus, God himself was purchasing our forgiveness. That is the greatest gift we could ever have and we must always be grateful for that.

What We Profess on Sunday Ought to Apply to Black Friday

What would happen if we thought about every dollar we spend this season as an expression of our faith? We would spend differently.

We might even want to avoid spending time reading the Bible. Let this removal of the Bible app stir in our hearts a greater desire to speak against this when able, and to enjoy and learn more about the beautiful gift of having the Word of God in front of us.
