1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
Psalm 118:1 “O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.”
As Christians, God has given us so many things that we should be thankful for, but most of the time we take these things for granted. One of the major gifts that He gives us is the gift of salvation. God loved us so much that He gave His Son to die on a cross so that one day, if we are saved, we can have a home in Heaven. He has also given us His Word which we are supposed to study and to follow its commandments. He has given us a church and a Pastor who takes time each week to prepare messages for us to hear from the Word of God. God has given us way too much to be thankful for, that it would take forever to list everything. It has been said, “Give thanks to God first, because without him you would not have everything else that you are thankful for.” God is more likely to bless you, if you are thankful on a daily basis for everything that He has already given to you. So, let's follow the commands that we are given in the Bible, and give thanks to God and others for everything that we have been privileged enough to have.
