With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it seems appropriate that we take time to give thanks to God for all of His abundant blessings to us. In fact, the Bible often tells us to give thanks, and here are some Bible verses about giving thanks. When our hearts give thanks, it helps us to give praise and credit where credit is due, and our hearts rejoice as well, as we take the time to reflect on all of the good gifts our Father has given us. James 1:17 says: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”
So here are 15 verses on giving thanks.
