Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the historic one-year lectionary.
Why do God's people give Him thanks? It is not, as a skeptic friend of mine once said, because God is stuck on himself and can't do without praise. Psalm 100:5 tells us it is because God is good. He is the faithful and loving God. he keeps generation after generation of his people in grace and peace.
Christians are well counseled to recount God's good deeds. As he has shown himself in the past to be the God who provides for our needs, we can expect he will remain the God who supplies. As God has shown his reconciling love in Christ, we can be hopeful for reconciliation. As God has shown his name to be holy, we can trust in God's holy care, making us holy as well.
What has the Lord done in the past? We can read much of it in the Scripture. All his works are good and faithful. He will never change. When we reflect on this love of God, we return him praise all our days.
