“I thank my God at all times for you because of the grace, the favor and spiritual blessing of God which was bestowed on you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Corinthians 1:4
In this verse Paul is speaking to the members of the Corinthian church, they are fellow believers. Reading this verse brought to mind my thankfulness for the believers I know, my brothers and sisters in Christ. Those I attend church with and those I don’t attend church with. All of these have prayed for me, comforted me, supported me and loved me.
I also want to thank God for those who may not be a believer that I know. I love them too, and my heart longs for them to open themselves up to a most loving God, who really only wants their best like any good father would his child. If you had a bad relationship with your earthly father don’t let that stop you from opening up to your heavenly Father. Whatever your ideal for the perfect father is, He is it.
I thank God for ALL these people in my life, because they have helped make me who I am today.
