“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Today as America celebrates THANKSgiving, we can easily come up with things that we are thankful for: family, friends, good health, a nice car, etc. But Thanksgiving should not stop after we put our leftovers away, take an afternoon nap, play some family football; we should continue giving thanks for ALL things. Thanksgiving is wonderful because it forces us to stop and remember all that we are thankful for, but then what?
Tomorrow we go back whining, moaning, wishing, complaining. Let’s stop this behavior. When you wish you had a new car, stop and thank God for the car that you do have. When you are complaining about your job, stop and thank God that you have a job. When you moan about your kids misbehaving, stop and thank God that you have kids. See where we are going here? We get so wrapped up in our day to day lives we so easily forget about what we do have, what we are blessed with.
Our family vows to not only be thankful today but everyday! How about you?
