Today is Day 4 of a month of gratitude!
Homework: Come to church and talk about the gifts you receive every Sunday from the body of Christ. Tell someone at church how you are changed every Sunday as a follower of Christ.
Our God is perfect in power, wisdom, kindness, love, all things…
He designed the practice of corporate worship because we need to be one body, one family to survive this spiritual battle and because he wants our love, respect and devotion. How are you healed, guided, challenged, inspired, reminded, called and filled by your time with the people of God? We are truly a remnant. What you may be tempted to take for granted is like a great gemstone you wear everyday set in a band of gold that is extremely rare to all around you, but common to you. Polish it today. Experience church worship, imperfect body parts and the joy of family in a fresh way with your new eyes of gratitude. Tell someone at church your favorite part of the worship service and why it meant a lot to you.
Have fun growing in gratitude today. Hope this helps; See you tomorrow.

PS… it’s 1:20AM and Carol and I just returned from an amazing auction event for our historic church building. I’ll blog about it tomorrow. For now I’m just happy that I’d already written something for tonight to cut and paste so I can go to bed.
