Paul is at pains to tell the Corinthians—and us—that he never stopped thanking God for all the graces they had received through Jesus Christ.
The message for us is that we should pray gratefully for the many gifts we have received through Jesus throughout our lives.
We need to continually remind ourselves that in fact all we have comes as gift from God often through Jesus. The simple prayer—‘I am forever grateful, dear Lord, for the many gifts I have received’—prayed through Jesus to his Father is music indeed to their ears. It is a continuing sign of our ongoing faithfulness as we strive to match the unfailing faithfulness of our God.
Lord, we ask for the grace to pray this prayer often.
