It’s easy to be thankful when we have plenty and are not in need – or is it? Thankfulness is an attitude of the heart and mind and is not necessarily dependent on the state of our financial affairs or even our health or general well-being. Those who rely on their Savior for all their needs have this attitude: “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crops fail and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pens and no cattle in the stalls, yet I rejoice in the Lord. I will be joyful in God my Savior” (Habakkuk 3:17-18).
About this blog
Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
