From the time we are growing up until we become parents ourselves, we are always reminded to respond in thankfulness for things that we are given or have done. It's a very important trait to take with you as you grow old.
Even though we are believers, we often forget to thank God for all the beautiful things he has done for us. So we should take time out of our busy week to just sit down alone and thank God for surrounding our lives with blessings. It is too often we are given such beautiful things, and don't realize how grateful we should be. There are people in this world who are less fortunate than you may be, so it is always important to say "thank you."
The Bible provides us with several Bible verses that signify the importance of being grateful. Below are 7 Bible verses that will remind you of the importance of being grateful: more >>

Days after Chuck Norris criticized Barack Obama in an op-ed entitled "Neutering Religious Holidays," the actor issued a "dare" to the Commander-in-Chief to cite his faith this Thanksgiving holiday.
Norris noted his fear that the United States is on "a slippery slope" toward religious intolerance in Tuesday's op-ed for Townhall after a Maryland school district erased all religious holidays from its calendar. Furthermore, "The Expendables 2" star alleged that Obama is "as silent as a church mouse" on issues relating to religious freedom.
"We haven't even hit Thanksgiving yet, and already the war on Christmas is underway," Norris penned in the op-ed for Townhall. "But does religious neutering accommodate diversity or merely endorse secular progressivism and political correctness as America's new religion?" more >>
Creation Museum President and CEO Ken Ham has affirmed that despite numerous misrepresentations in the media, creationists do not deny that climate change exists, and said that it has been occurring since biblical times.
"No matter how many times we say that we do not deny climate change, secularists continue to say that we are climate change deniers," Ham wrote in a blog post for Answers in Genesis.
He added that creationists deny "worldview-based assumptions" about the causes of climate change, and argued that it is observational science that needs to be interpreted in the right way. more >>
Nearly half of Americans now believe that the recent surge in natural disasters is the result of biblical "End Times" than climate change, and more than two-thirds of white evangelical Protestants hold this belief, according to a new study.
