Thanksgiving in the Bible

Bible study on Thanksgiving.
As we celebrated Thanksgiving last Thursday, I began to wonder what the Bible says about "thanksgiving." I generally remembered what the Bible said, but I was curious about the specifics. So I did a little research, while Beth fixed Thanksgiving dinner.
Good Deeds Produce Thanksgiving
As we do the Lord's work, we affect the lives of others. The result is thanksgiving, directed toward God.
As we go through our day-to-day walk, letting our light shine as God's children and doing the good deeds He has ordained, it causes others to glorify God and give thanks.
Thanksgiving in Prayer
A thankful life is a prayerful life. A life void of prayer is an unthankful life.
Thanksgiving in Heaven
If we're not thankful in our prayers upon the earth, it's doubtful we'll live in heaven, where we'll be busy offering thanks to God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Every Day is Thanksgiving, for Christians
Whatever you do in the bustle of day-to-day life, remember to give thanks. And live in such a way that others, who watch you and experience God's goodness from your hands, can't help but pause and offer up a prayer to express their thanks. In these ways, God will be glorified, and receive the thanks He deserves.
