Background Scripture: Luke 17:11-19
Memory Verse: Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!” 1 Chronicles 16:8 ESV
It was an exciting morning! Jaime stood in line with hundreds of people. The first one hundred children through the door would receive a new gaming system. All around him, people chatted with anticipation.
When the store manager finally opened the door, Jamie was one of the first children to rush through the door. Yes! He was among the first one hundred.
Gathering with the other winners, Jaime jumped up and down, waiting for the manager to mount the platform and hand out the prizes. As soon as the manager mounted the platform, hands immediately went up reaching out hoping to be the first to receive their prize.
As the manager handed out each prize, each child ran away excitedly to show his winnings. When the manager came to Jaime, Jamie said, “Thank you!”
Smiling, the manager said, “That’s the best thing I’ve heard all morning. Here's a free game to go with your new gaming system."
Even more excited, Jaime ran towards his mom and dad to show what the manager gave him. When Jaime's parents saw what the manager did for Jaime, they shouted from where they stood, "Thank you!"
The manager shouted back, "He's a good kid! You're welcome!"
Thought: Show appreciation. Say thank you.
Prayer: Father God, let us not forget how you bless us. Let us remember to say thank you for all you've done. In Jesus's name, we pray. Amen.
Mission Challenge: For one full day, consciously say thank you for everything someone does for you.
