An Attitude of Gratitude

Host:
Dr. James Dobson
Guest:
Pastor Chuck Swindoll
For a Christian, Thanksgiving should be a lot more than just food, family, and football. On today’s special edition of Family Talk, Pastor Chuck Swindoll, in a timeless sermon on the topic gratitude, reflects on Psalm 103, in which King David thanks God for pardoning his sin, redeeming his life from the pit, and crowning him with love and compassion. The hymn "It Is Well with My Soul" reveals why we are so grateful. "My sin, not in part but the whole; Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more; Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!" That’s true redemption indeed!
