“I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints.” Philemon 1:4-5

Yesterday we were encouraged to be people who provoke thankfulness in others. I was talking to someone after the service yesterday who said that the word “provoke” has always had a negative connotation to him – for example, provoking someone to anger or to disobedience. Dave shared that the definition of provoke is “to arouse to a feeling or action.” As Christ-followers, we have an opportunity to cause those around us to be thankful, through the way we live out our faith and the way we love others.

What are you doing to provoke thankfulness in others? As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week with family and friends, let?s not only remember to give thanks, but let?s be intentional about being a catalyst for thankfulness in others.

Happy Thanksgiving!
