Eph. 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

As we approach what is for us this Thanksgiving holiday, let us be mindful of the fact that we should be thankful first and foremost that God had mercy on our lives and allowed us to hear the good news of his kingdom.  Just as Israel did nothing that could ever be deemed worthy of earning the distinction of being declared holy, there is nothing we could do to ever earn the privilege of hearing the gospel.  We heard it simply because of the grace of a sovereign God.  But just as he had mercy on our lives, so too should we have mercy on the lives of others.  Be merciful toward others on purpose, and may the Lord bless you and your family during this time.

Beginning Monday, November 30, Ron Mosby will be on Periscope broadcasting A Daily Glimpse.  Be sure to follow him on Twitter: @mosbyknowsme and on Periscope: A Daily Glimpse – mosbyknowsme.

Finally, Ron will be conducting a discussion and book signing at the Triple Moon Coffee Company, 1100 Central Ave., Middletown, OH 45044 on Saturday, December 5, 2015, from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.  If you have friends or family in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas,  let them know so they can come out and discuss the kingdom of God and have an opportunity to buy a copy of A Glimpse of the Kingdom.

May you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday.
