Thank You! – aword we use probably every day, or to be correct two words.
It is said an average person will say ‘thank you’ five times a day. To me that doesn’t seem to be such a great number of times!
It’s also been pointed out that more often than not when the word/s are used they are uttered out of habit rather than sincerity and gratefulness.
When Derek pours me a second glass of water, often I don’t need a full glass and so I will say ‘thank you’ to stop him filling my glass. Why don’t I just say “That’s enough”, then thank him! Do you see my point?
‘Thank you’ is a way of showing our appreciation and is a sign of humility. It is used globally and I suspect one of the first words we learn when in a foreign country. Go on, count up how many different languages you can say ‘thank you’ in. I am sure you will be surprised! I know I was.
Not just an ordinary phrase is it? When used correctly, it is an expression which helps to make up the everyday things of human relationships. The same can be said of the relationship that we have with Jesus. ‘Thank you’ is confirmation that we matter, that we’re not being taken advantage of and it becomes a link we have to trust; a spontaneous remark to the Lord when we view the beauty around us, or come upon something special that we hadn’t expected to see.
There are many scriptures that talk about ‘thanks’; a reminder in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ‘Rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances.’ It’s not always easy is it? 1 Corinthians 15 tells us to give thanks to God who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Time and again in the Bible we are urged to be thankful. It is a trait of someone who has Christ in their hearts.
