“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good…”  Psalm 100:4-5.

Where do you direct your thanksgiving? When you give thanks, where is your focus? In spite of anything else we may hear, the true direction for genuine thanksgiving is always up. All good things come from the God who is good. Every blessing we receive in this life ultimately has God as its source. God may use others to bless us, but all blessings originate with Him. As you give thanks this season, may you direct your praise to the God who provides every good thing. Direct your praise to Him, “For the Lord is good.”
