Above all, put on love—the perfect bond of unity. And let the peace of the Messiah, to which you were also called in one body, control your hearts. Be thankful. Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among you, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, and singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:14-17 (HCSB)
Ok so it may seem silly to have an image of a Starbucks cup! But did you know that until November 20 you can buy a drink and get one free? The commercial states, “This is our way of saying ‘THANKS’ to all of our customers!” How about that…big business saying “Thank-you”. Sure it is being done so that we will return and spend money, but how about you taking the time to say “THANKS” to them.
11/18 – Thanks for the Service! Today, make a special effort to say thank you to anyone who provides you with a service. The barista at Starbucks, for example, might be pleasantly shocked when you tell him or her how great a job they’ve done preparing your pumpkin-spice latte.
