Always be thankful.
Let the words of Christ, in all their richness,
live in your hearts and make you wise.
Use His words to teach and counsel each other.
Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.
And whatever you do or say,
let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus,
all the while giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
And may the blessing of God,
the love of Jesus Christ,
and the presence of the Holy Spirit
strengthen and encourage you
as you go out from here
to live lives of gratitude and service. Amen.
