Project Thankful

Thanksgiving is the time of year when we reflect on how grateful we are for everything God has given us.

While thanking God is our No. 1 priority, it's also important for us to express thanks to one another. Jesus said, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (Matt. 25:40). When we thank others for what they do for us, we're showing the love of God.
