What emotions do you feel as you contemplate the approaching holiday season? Peace, joy, and thankfulness? Or does the Thanksgiving and Christmas season mean exhausting travel, hectic schedules, and stress?
We’re all commonly encouraged to remember the true spirit of the holiday season—but those encouragements usually come once the hectic pace of the holidays is already upon us. This year, we want to help you get into the spirit of the holidays before they hit with a new devotional newsletter centered around thanksgiving! It’s called Give Thanks: Reflections on Biblical Gratitude, and it starts next week and runs through Thanksgiving (U.S.).
Give Thanks is sent out twice a week and consists of a short Bible reading centered around gratitude and thanksgiving. Reflection questions after each reading will help you to consider how you can cultivate a spirit of thankfulness in your own life. If you’re familiar with our Monday Morning Scripture series, Give Thanks follows a similar format.
So if you’re already feeling the stress of the holiday season and would like to make gratitude the defining emotion of the next few months, sign up for the Give Thanks devotional! (And by the time the Give Thanks devotional wraps up at Thanksgiving, we’ll have a selection of Advent and Christmas devotionals ready to pick up where it leaves off!)
