" To bring the sacrifice of thanksgiving means to sacrifice our understanding of what is beneficial and thank God for everything because He is benevolent. A sacrifice of thanks lays down our perspective and raises hands in praise anyways - always. A sacrifice is, by definition, not an easy thing - but it is a sacred thing. There is this: We give thanks to God not because of how we feel but because of who He is."
- Ann Voskamp in One Thousand Gifts Devotional
