A big meal isn’t the only thing to prepare. If you’re anxious about what might come up at the dinner table, take this opportunity to prepare your heart as well.
Here are 4 practical ways to keep your words and actions rooted in Scripture:
❧ Pray Beforehand
Ask God to give you wisdom, grace and patience if tense moments arise, or while interacting with difficult family members.
❧ Prepare to Address Specific Topics
Consider what topics might be discussed, then invest some time searching the Bible and praying about how to respond.
❧ Listen First
If something upsetting comes up, your gut reaction may be to lash out, but God’s Word says be quick to listen and slow to speak.
❧ Respond With Love
Jesus commands His followers to love one another. How can you reflect Christ’s love to friends and family?Read MoreHappy Thanksgiving from our BGEA family to yours. We’re thankful for your prayers and ministry support.“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
—1 Thessalonians 5:16–18, ESV
Saying thank you can be a difficult thing to do. Doing so means admitting that you are in another’s debt. I am admitting that another individual did something for me. I am not all powerful, I need the help of others to survive. The reality is that the human race is interdependent. We cannot live life alone. We are constantly relying on each other for all kinds of resources, both physical and emotional. When I say thank you I am acknowledging that I have received something from another human being.
