Daily Nugget

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

Thanksgiving is only half said until you have done something to show your thankfulness. A missionary to India was traveling through a city and stopped to speak to a man beside the road. He talked with the man for a time about Jesus. Then, having to travel on, he gave him a few pages of the Bible in the man’s language. The Indian read them and was thrilled to learn of Jesus. To show his gratitude, the man measured the footprints left by the missionary, and made a pair of moccasins. He then traveled 200 miles to give them to the missionary as an expression of thanks. The missionary’s life was enriched by the gift, but the Indian man was much more enriched because he had expressed his thanks.  (Anonymous)

What a picture of Thanksgiving…  or Thanks-living, showing thanks more than just saying thanks. The writer of Luke 17:15-16 was discussing the story of the ten lepers and said this, “ And one of them, when he saw that he   was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks.”

God, Thank You for reminding us to show our gratitude with actions not just words. Amen.
