Thank God!

O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His loving kindness is everlasting. I Chr. 16:34
I hear it all the time.  “Thank goodness!”  “I thank my lucky stars”  “Knock on wood”  “I’m so lucky”  Why don’t you try thanking the One who’s really behind it.  Thank God!  You may get some funny looks from people, but it just seems to me that it is the height of rudeness to not thank the One who really deserves it.  You are not lucky or fortunate.  The stars have not smiled on you today.  This is not your lucky day.  You are blessed by God Himself!  Give credit where credit is due.
