This time of year we set aside to purposefully thank the Lord for His provisions and blessings. I encourage each of you to take a few minutes alone with the Lord, and go thru every area / aspect of your life (spiritual, eternal, family, work, home, ministry, health, physical, possessions, etc) and thank God our Father for His provision and His blessings beyond our needs. Not only will this time glorify the Lord in our life and eyes, but it will help each of us make an attitude adjustment that we each so need.

We are heading into the “Christmas” [Holiday, Winter Break] season where advertisers will do everything they can to make you feel like you need more stuff, better stuff, bigger stuff. These advertisements will tell us how much better our life will be if we give “this” and get “that” – offering us better lives, happier relationships, success and even wealth, just for buying their wares.

We need to be on guard and prepared to face this onslaught of desire and dis-satisfaction, and the best defense is to be truly thankful for what we do have.

So what does this have to do with the media ministry? First and foremost, I am thankful to be serving with each of you, thankful for the opportunity to worship together in service to our King, the Lord Jesus Christ. Second, it is easy to get caught up in the greed when we work around all this stuff – the equipment that we use to preform our service. It is easy to wish for a better mixer or dream about how much easier our life would be with a digital re-sound mix-la-fier. Let’s stop right now and be grateful for the opportunities we have and the tools that have been provided to us.

I pray that you and your families have a blessed Thanksgiving and a true heart of thankfulness.
