“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart.”
Giving thanks to the Lord can not be a partial undertaking. To be true and honest, sincere and authentic, it takes the whole heart.
Sometimes we do things with a half-hearted attempt just to say, “It’s done” or “I did it.” But with giving thanks to God, we have to be sincere. God knows the thoughts and intentions in our minds before we ever say a word. So when you give thanks to the Lord, do it with your whole heart.
