“Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world? It is not he who prays most or fasts most; it is not he who gives most alms or is most eminent for temperance, chastity or justice; but it is he who is always thankful to God, who wills everything that God wills, who receives everything as an instance of God’s goodness and has a heart always ready to praise God for it.” – William Law
Lord help me always to be thankful for who you are and everything you have given me, help me to want the same things that you want, and help me to recognise that every good and perfect gift comes from you.
There are so many things I have to be thankful for, for Dave and Lorna, who are expecting their first baby any week now. For Wil and Anna at church who are also expecting, and especially my sister Rachel who is due in January. I’m going to be an uncle! Also, my friend Tom from university is getting married in October. Father, I thank you for all these pieces of good news, I pray that you’ll be with all of these families, protect them and bless them in Jesus’ name. Amen
