Morning Thought: Live a life of thanksgiving. Thankfulness enables you to be a carrier of joy. It is like a hedge of protection around your heart. When the fountain of thanksgiving is flowing from your depths it clears out all the debris and dirt lodged within. “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” (Colossians 2:6-7, NIV).
