In preschool (3-5 years), we learned about thanking Jesus. Each and every one of us does such a great job of sending prayer requests to God. It’s easy to ask Him for things. But, what about when those prayer requests are answered? I know for me, I tend to be slow to thank God. It’s not that I’m not grateful, but just that I forget. However, that’s not right. God deserves all the praise and the glory, and when we forget to thank Him, that’s not giving Him the credit He deserves. He already has done more than enough, so we should definitely thank Him when He goes above and beyond.
