“A brother recently asked me what was the best way to
overcome coldness of heart and a ‘bound’ spirit when he
sought to pray. I told him to begin praising the Lord as soon
as he dropped upon his knees, and if he could think of nothing
else, to commence by thanking him that he was not already in
Hell.
I read recently of a handsome young man who returned from
the war minus his right arm. His friends and relatives gathered
together to commiserate him and were bewailing his loss. He
turned to them and said, ‘Help me to praise God that I still
have my left arm!'”
-A.W. Pink, Letters of Arthur W. Pink

today while rightfully giving thanks for family, friends, and the blessed lives we live, may we all remember to give thanks for the gospel and our savior jesus christ – without which all other blessings are meaningless.

happy thanksgiving.
