“O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures for ever.” (Ps 106/107: 1)
Goodness and mercy. That’s what I’d like to give thanks for, this year, as I prepare for the wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving. God reveals His goodness and mercy to me not only through things and situations and states of my mind and heart, in His grace, but also through the kind words, actions, and attitudes of people I know. People impart to me God’s goodness and mercy. I’m reminded of that once again today, as I’m meeting with remarkable people, both old and new friends, during my trip to Boston. Thank You, God, for the goodness and mercy of Your people. Amen!
