“Because”: Week 1

“Be thankful for what you have and take care of what God has blessed you with, No matter how insignificant you think it may be. You are blessed.”

“Give thanks with a grateful heart in everything we do with gratitude, Let that be the sacrifice we give.. That’s what glorifies God”

“We don’t worship because we have to. We worship because our heart compels us to give thanks”


Matthew 15:8–9 (ESV)

8“ ‘This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me;
9 in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”

Psalm 50:23 (ESV)
23 The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!”

Psalm 51:15–17 (ESV)
15 O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
16 For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
2 Corinthians 4:15 (ESV)
15 For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

Psalm 51:10–12 (ESV)
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.
