This month is filled with warm colors, pumpkin flavored everything, and copious amounts of food. Not to mention, our nation collectively comes to together to give thanks for the good that is in our lives. We, of course, can be thankful for the endless blessings God has given us: family, homes, jobs. As Christ followers, we have so much more to be thankful for than material possessions. I am reminded of the Apostle Paul’s letter to Philippi:
“But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss because of Christ. More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of Him I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them filth, so that I may gain Christ.” Philippians 3:7-8
Knowing Christ is the pinnacle! Everything else is just icing on the . . . turkey. This November recycle your blessings. Let your gratitude be known in your community. Give because you have received. Share because you have more than enough.
We are equally grateful that you are here. A huge thank you to our clients and team members for giving us the opportunity to serve, grow and walk with you. And thank you to our families for being so supportive (and patient)—day in, day out.
