Scripture Thursday Linky Party

 Therefore by Him let us continually
offer the sacrifice of praise to God,
that is, the fruit of our lips,
giving thanks to His name. 

But do not forget to do good and to share,
for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 
Hebrews 13:15-16 (NKJV)

With Thanksgiving and Christmas upon us, it’s often a time we reflect on our blessings and are thankful for what God has given us.  He reminds us in this verse not to forget to do good and to share.  You might think, what do I have to share?  Most of us don’t have extra money sitting around to put in envelopes and pass out, but we do have talents and perhaps resources that others don’t have, or an accumulation of certain items that we no longer use (such as fabric and craft supplies in my case).

Think about ways you could do good and share. 
  • help a mom out with her children for a morning or afternoon,
  • visit an elderly person and take them some cookies or muffins,
     
  • take time to pray for someone
  • take someone to lunch that could use a pick-me-up,
  • make a meal for someone who is stressed and trying to keep it together
  • send an encouraging handwritten note through the mail
  • share your time
  • clean out your craft supplies, books, fabric, collectibles, toys, clothes, pass them on to someone who can use them
Are your blessings overflowing?  Share them with others; put action behind your gratitude.  Doing for others is a way of pleasing and thanking God.   

Here is my project with today's scripture, Hebrews 13:16.  I made it digitally using images from The Graphics Fairy and Jessica Sprague.  You are free to use this scripture image in your own projects.  

I am attempting to offer my first .png file ~ as I’m not sure how successful I can be at this, please bear with me.  At least if it doesn’t work, you’ll end up a with a nice .jpg file and I can attempt to come up with a better way by next week.  This scripture is also free for you to use in your projects.



This is a weekly linky party.  Here’s how you can participate:
  • You may link up a project you have made that has scripture from the Bible on the front of it.  It may be in digital format or other mediums.  
  • It is a scripture of your choice and does not have to be specific to any theme.  It does have to be actual scripture from the Bible and not an inspirational phrase or quote.  I reserve the right to remove links that are not actual Bible Verses or links that I feel are not in good taste for this blog.
  • You may use the free images I've given you here in your project if you'd like. 
  • Please link up to the actual blog post and not your blog home page.
  • Please either have my button (code on the sidebar) on your blog, or add a link to my blog in your post.  
 Thanks for stopping by, I can't wait to see what you share.
