Thanksgiving Unity

 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23
This is a time to be thankful, a time to focus on all the Lord has done for us. It’s also a time to take inventory of our relationships and mend as many as possible.  The Lord’s last prayer was that we would be ONE. Unity in our families is close to the HEART of GOD. Are there relationships that need to be mended?…forgiveness extended?, clearing the air for careless words, or just saying, “I was wrong, I’m sorry, please forgive me.” It’s truly amazing how admission of guilt melts the heart of those we love. During this season Governor Brownback has asked Kansans to look at reconciliation, in our families and our world. In all the busyness of cleaning, cooking, decorating, are we taking time to be truly thankful for those around us? Take some time…sit down, ask God to reveal to you what He wants you to do.
 “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness (right standing with Him and our fellow man) and all these things will be added unto you.” Matt. 6:33
