Saying "thank you"

“God is in the details.” How true this is. Think of gratitude, for example. Essential to the fabric of public life and foundation of the family is the simple phrase “thank you.” Without these words gracing our speech, what are we but animals? The most recent issue of The Gospel Witness, a great publication of Jarvis Street Baptist Church in Toronto, has taken for its theme this subject: “The Biblical Basis for Gratitude” (February 2009). There are three good articles—by Allen R. Mickle, Joe Harrod, and Nathan Finn—on the seemingly mundane, but awfully profound, subject of saying “thank you.” Well worth reading!
