The Lord’s Prayer – Part 3 – Thankfulness: 'Monday Morning Musing - August 22, 22022'

In a Jewish worldview, thankfulness was considered an activity that would last for eternity. Sacrifices and offerings would cease, but thankfulness would be a perpetual kingdom phenomenon. When Jesus exhorts his followers to pray for the “kingdom to come” they would have associated thankfulness as an actualization of the future. The practice of thankfulness is a kingdom establishing phenomenon. “Thy kingdom come” is not a passive plea for God’s future activity. We have a part to play in the present in the realization of that prayer.
