This Bible message captures the very essence of our work as Knights of Columbus and a perfect way to open my Thanksgiving message to each of you:
2 Corinthians 9:11-0 - You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
During my prayers this morning, I gave thanks for all that is good in my life, all the challenges that God knew would strengthen me and especially for all the blessings that I've received. The obvious ones came to mind, my family and the struggles we all have and how God has assisted all of us, not in our time but in His.
My next thought was my work in the Knights of Columbus council and the fellowship that I enjoy with each of you. You each give me the strength and guidance to continue to my work as 'Head of my Household' in the way God intended. I want to thank each of you for your work, your guidance and the love you bring to our council in your generosity that results in thanksgiving to God.
You make a difference.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you and your families!
