"The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God." ESV
How can thanking God be a sacrifice? We cannot give anything to God that isn't already His, except our genuine, heart felt, pure thankfulness for who He is. That's going beyond anything we own, any money we give, any works, and any consideration of ourselves.
Lord, forgive us for speaking words of gratitude to You because we are expected to or because we want others to see how spiritual we are. Do not hold it against us when we feel our gratitude is satisfied by our efforts, time, and money we give. It is because of who You are that we give thanks. Amen.
