And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. (Colossians 3:15 NRSV)

I remember reading about a teller at the drive-in window of a bank who was having difficulty with the glaring sun. He lowered the shade. Behind the shade he could see customers as they drove up, but they couldn't see him. As one woman drove in, the teller punched the button. The money drawer opened just as the woman came to a stop. She put her check in the drawer and the draw withdrew. Seconds later the drawer rolled out again with her money in it. She took the money and stared at the window. She couldn't see anybody. Then she said, "I know you are completely automated, but I want to thank you anyway."

It is really nice in our automated world to have someone we can thank, especially during this season of Advent and Christmas. I think it is sad that many people have a feeling of gratitude, but they have no one to thank. We do have someone to thank. So, let's share the joy of the coming of a savior, Jesus Christ, with others.

Lord Jesus, I am very thankful! In Jesus' name, Amen.
