Encouraging children from an early age to be grateful and thank God is important. God teaches us in His word that we should always give thanks. That is part of our Christian life and worship to Him.

In these days I have been evaluating several books that we can use for this purpose. Involving children in reading is vital. The first book that our children should know is the Bible. The bible is inspired by God, useful for teaching on many topics. However, there are several books inspired by the Word of God with beautiful illustrations that our little ones can use. Below I will share with you at least 5 books that can be of great help to you.

These books can help you to teach and encourage your kids about thanks giving:

These books can be part of your library and you can use them at any time. Giving thanks to God and having a grateful heart is one of the best teachings we can give to our children. We must encourage them to be grateful all the time!

O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His compassion and lovingkindness endure forever!Psalm 107:1

Having a reading time with our children before bed can be a challenge. Today we live surrounded by many distractions that do not edify. Having a time to share with family, or between parents and children before going to bed is healthy. Having a devotional time or reading the word of God is even more so.

Today I want to share with you this wonderful book that came to my hands “Night Night Devotions” by Amy Parker. Since I was a mother, I was passionate about reading and now I want to instill that practice in my son.

Giving Thanks to God

Thanking God for all his goodness with us is an expression of the grateful heart. Giving thanks to God changes all things, changes us inside and transforms our outer atmosphere.

Thanking God for all his goodness with us is an expression of the grateful heart. Giving thanks to God changes all things, changes us inside and transforms our outer atmosphere.

The Bible says in Psalm 100:4

Enter His gates with a song of thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, bless and praise His name.

Source

The Bible urges us to thank God at all times. We must always enter his presence by thanking him.

There are two things that denote our thanksgiving. First, we manifest our total dependence on God. Second, we express our gratitude to Him for his works in our lives.

Giving thanks is a way to praise God. And according to the Word of God we can do it in many ways. How we can do it?

  • Signing
  • Praying
  • Giving to others
  • In all circumstances
  • With our brothers and sister in the faith

Why are you grateful today? What reasons do you have to thank God, not in a given season, but at all times?

May our hearts, thoughts and actions always manifest the gratitude we have for God and his wonderful works.
