Practical Ways of Thanking God (Part 1)

"For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?" (1 Corinthians 4:7—NIV).

It is plausible to use words to thank God for the favours He grants us. Nevertheless, I believe it is more honourable to thank God “practically”.

Given that all we have is given to us through God’s grace—the unmerited favour—we should ask ourselves why God puts us into positions that He has not given to others. We are placed where we are in order to SERVE. Howbeit, many of us do the unthinkable. As if it is not already bad enough that we serve ourselves, we double it by expecting others to serve us. Is it not cruel that people who are already disadvantaged are taken advantage of by those who are advantaged? Far be it that this should be found in us, Christians. How do we treat our farmhands, housemaids, among others, for example?

If we are going to pursue the heart of Christ then we should strive to give our advantage away. We should be wary of taking advantage of our advantage to further our advantage.

Remember:
Giving our advantage away is one of the practical ways of thanking God for His favours in our lives.

This is great Daniel. I appreciate being reminded. I may feel I'm not rich, but to someone else, I am and I should use whatever advantage I have to help others. Good points, well put and I'm looking forward to Part II.
