Thank you God for the gift of life that you have given us. Thank you for the gift of love that you demonstrated through sending your Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Savior and Lord for the forgiveness of our sins.
Keep in our minds that this life is not our home but we are just passing through. Help us to remember to be good stewards of the blessings you have given us, to be a blessing to others and not horde material things for ourselves.
Let not our hearts be tied up with our possession as you said in your word – for where your treasure is there your heart is also. Help us to lay our treasures in heaven and to focus on the life to come in your kingdom.
