I’d like to borrow this and pass it along from CTom.

Note the reference to Dani-el and his thanksgiving; praying with pride in giving of thanks; and most importantly, the Lord Himself giving thanks………….on the night in which he was betrayed, knowing full well what stood before Him.

Take the time to thoughtfully consider this post, and hopefully you too can offer a hearty Amen to the last sentence.

Depending upon the the translation, some form of the word “thank” can be found in the Bible between 130 and 210 times. So it is fair to say the Bible has much to say about giving thanks and of the many reasons to give thanks.

Leviticus is largely about the ceremony involved in sacrifices, and it talks about attitude as well as procedure, substance as well as form.

Leviticus 22:29Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

29 And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the Lord, offer it at your own will.

Thanks requires thankfulness. King David was a thankful man. Thus, he wrote many psalms expressing his thanks. One ends with these words.

2 Samuel 22:50-51Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee…

    Thanks for the reblog and the kind review.

    Daniel is a favorite of mine too. Without the Holy Spirit, it is difficult to imagine where he found such courage, smarts, and devotion to God.

    Jesus? I think David asked that question best of all.

    Psalm 8:3-5 New King James Version (NKJV)

    3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
    The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
    4 What is man that You are mindful of him,
    And the son of man that You visit him?
    5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
    And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

    Again, Happy Thanksgiving! For that is all we can give.
