Bible Verses on Thanksgiving: Why Is It Important to Thank God? 18 Ways That Christians Can Thank, Honor and Praise God, As Taught By Scripture
Oct 02, 2015 Thanksgiving is defined in the dictionary as “the giving of gratitude, especially towards God.” The Greek word for thanksgiving is “eucharistia,” which translates to “the giving of thanks for God’s grace,” gratitude, and giving of thanks. The Bible commands believers to thank God. An example of this is found in Psalm chapter 100 verse 4, which states “enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” The structure of this statement is not a suggestion. It is a definite command. A few reasons why the Bible commands Christians to give thanksgiving to God is because it keeps us in a right relationship with God and allows us to maintain a good perspective on life. When our hearts are filled with thanksgiving, we keep the sins and temptations of greed, selfishness, and self-sufficiency away. As Christians thank God daily, they are reminded of everything that God has given to them. Everything is from God. Thanksgiving reminds Christians of what they have and the blessings they have received from the LORD. Christianity Daily compiled a list of 18 Bible verses on the importance of giving thanks to God.
