Lord, I thank You that this scripture reminds us to give You thanks for everything that You do for us. Your love is beyond measure. Forgive us when we take this for granted and say unkind things to others, or be thoughtless when they are having a hard time or fail to show gratitude to You or others for their kindnesses. You love us despite some of the things that we choose to do. Help us show respect and compassion to those in need as we should. Amen.
