“How can I repay the Lord for all the great good done for me?”
Recently, many church members came together at our Parish Gatherings to take time to think about the blessings in their lives and enrich one another by sharing them. I hope you were able to be there, or that you took some time to think about those blessings on your own. They truly are expressions of our loving God’s presence in our lives.
But, appreciating God’s gifts is only a first step in developing a spirit of Gratitude. What do we do next? In the Old Testament, Psalm 116:2 puts that question to all generations and individuals: “How can I repay the Lord for all the great good done for me?” Fortunately, we do not have to work out an answer all by ourselves; we have guides in our Bible. The Lord Jesus says, “Follow me” – act as He did, in joy and in trust in God. Building on that, St. Paul explains that ALL have gifts from the Holy Spirit, ready to be discovered and used. These gifts and talents are ways God has blessed us so we can express our Gratitude for the great good He has done.
