Psalm 92:1, 2: “It is good to give thanks to the LORD and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your loving kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night”
An article in the Wall Street Journal health section, published November 23, 2010 had some interesting things to say about thankfulness. Of course the secular writer didn’t give proper glory to God, but she did quote research showing that a thankful attitude can improve your mental, physical and emotional health.
Big surprise? No.
Most of us already know that we feel better all around when we’re feeling thankful than when we’re griping and fussy.
But there’s more to it than just counting our blessings. Those blessings have a source. They come from Someone.
That’s why a couple of verses later, the Psalm says: “For Thou, O Lord, hast made me glad by what Thou hast done, I will sing for joy at the works of Thy hands.”
We can all be better off by developing thankful hearts.
Pity those who don’t know Whom to thank.
